Communication of science on the internet is a rapidly growing phenomenon. As with any kind of content, it's important to be able to find and promote quality work. There are many 'Best of' anthologies for the written word (including my favorite for blog posts: The Open Laboratory); however, there hasn't been a similar way to recognize excellence in audio podcasts and online video. Until now. Rose Eleveth, Ben Lillie and Bora Zivcovic have teamed up to create 'Science Studio', which is essentially a hub where people can nominate their favorite online (science-based) audio and video work. The team ran a successful kickstarter in the fall, and their recently launched website provides all of the details one needs in order to make a nomination. Winners will be highlighted in the Science Studio 2012 collection, which will be posted online in October of 2013. It's high time to recognize the many folks out there creating fantastic audio and visual content in the name of science!
