Blawg Review will be giving away only one award this year:
We have enjoyed many outstanding presentations of Blawg Review in 2007 and, as announced today in Second Life, we're going to focus on what has made Blawg Review as popular as it is for 140 consecutive weeks. This year, the only Blawg Review Award will be given for peer-review and recognition of one of these presentations as the undisputed Blawg Review of the Year. To ensure that the most deserving issue of Blawg Review is given due recognition as Blawg Review of the Year 2007, please follow these nomination rules:
This year, the award for Blawg Review of the Year will be given to that issue of Blawg Review, from #89 to #140 inclusive, that is nominated by the greatest number of those who have hosted an issue of Blawg Review from #1 through #140. Each of those hosts may nominate for Blawg Review of the Year 2007 as many issues, from #89 to #140 inclusive, as they wish to recognize for excellence by linking such nomination(s) on their blogs in a post dated not later than January 14, 2008, titled "Blawg Review Nominations" linking to the issue(s) nominated for Blawg Review of the Year. If you haven't hosted Blawg Review yet, but are scheduled to host an upcoming issue of Blawg Review, your nominations will be counted as well. Just send an email to the editor, including a link to your post, to ensure that your nominations are counted. Nominations for one's own presentation of Blawg Review, however excellent, will not be counted as a peer-reviewed nomination.
Read more here. So, here are my nominations (although I reserve the right to nominate additional entries as they occur to me):
- Blawg Review #93 - Cyberlaw Central which was dedicated to Steve Jackson Games and its Illuminati game.
- Blawg Review #128 - Lex Ferenda, the first Irish-hosted Blawg Review which touched on cyberlaw, media studies and legal education.
- Blawg Review # 130 - from Dianne Levin and Geoff Sharp, which was split not just between two different blogs but two different continents.
