The Deadline has passed!
There are a total of over 700 submissions for OpenLab 2009. Thank you all for submitting your and other people’s blog posts. I at least opened every one of them, and already read many of them and the overall quality looks very high.
SciCurious is ready (here is her post), judges are ready, and the judging process is about to begin.
And while you are waiting for results, you can read all the submitted entries right here!
And once you are done reading them all, you can go back to the 2006, 2007 and 2008 editions and read them as well.
And keep checking in every now and then….nobody knows exactly on which date the final winners will be announced – whenever we are happy with it and ready.
