    Congratulations! That’s great news, well done. Now all you need is some broadband so you can write some new, longer posts 🙂

  2. Richard P. Grant says:

    Indeed! And thanks.
    I still don’t know whether it was the “Philosophy”, “Research” or “Scholarship” that did it, but I’m not quibbling 🙂

  3. Jennifer Rohn says:

    Maybe there was a hidden category called “Rant”?

  5. Austin Elliott says:

    Congrats Richard – good to see someone winning for a “mix of stuff” blog. One of my issues with the POLICY (shhhh!) is that it tends to suggest scientists only blog about strictly science-y things. Which isn’t human nature.
    Anyway, well done.

  6. Austin Elliott says:

    PS And second Jenny about the ranting. Rants are one of the best things about blogs, of course.

  7. Richard P. Grant says:

    Heh. Maybe we should have a NN Award for Best Interdisciplinary Rant. Now that would be a USP.
    And thanks all. blushes

  8. Ken Doyle says:

    Congrats! (Also, I second Austin’s comment…)

  9. Kausik Datta says:

    Ah-huh! So that is why we haven’t been seeing you in the comments in these parts!
    Well, congratulations galore!

  10. Christopher Surridge says:

    Congratulations! I’m betting that it was the Philosophy that done it. As Mr S Holmes was fond of saying: When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever is left, however improbable, must be true.

  11. Elizabeth Moritz says:

    Congrats Richard!

  12. Kausik Datta says:

    @Christopher: LOL!
    So which one is it? Philosophy = impossible? Or, philosophy = improbable? 🙂

  13. Richard P. Grant says:

    Thanks 🙂
    So, who’s up to help me spend the winnings down the pub?

  15. Bob O'Hara says:

    Congrats. It is an odd category, isn’t it?

  16. Richard Wintle says:

    wild applause
    Well done you. 🙂

  17. Kristi Vogel says:

    Well done, Richard – congratulations!
    I love your category, “Me”, btw. So much more direct and honest than “Personal”. Heh!

  18. Stephen Curry says:

    Many congratulations Richard! Now, how many drinks does $50 buy these days?

  19. Eva Amsen says:

    Four or five. (It costs around £10 to convert/cash a foreign cheque, so you have about £10-$15 left, probably.)

  20. Richard P. Grant says:

    Yes Kristi, I’m through being modest.
    Shut up, Gee.
    Eva’s right. But what the hell.

  21. Eva Amsen says:

    I accidentally used different money symbols in my comment. This keyboard has too many of them too close together. I meant: £10-£15

  22. Henry Gee says:

    I never said nuthin’. And you smell of wee. So there.

  23. Richard Wintle says:

    Oi, miss!! Henry’s comment was “offensively phrased”!
    It was, however, nice and brief. So whatever.

  24. Alejandro Correa says:

    Sister!, sister!, Richard not invite me a beer!
