This year, Blasdelb
kicks it off with the most votes for his post "Where My Ladies At
," featuring a video commentary by science communicator and YouTube educator Emily Graslie, and a handy-dandy linked list of her recommended "awesome female science educators online with channels that focus on Science Technology Engineering and Math."
Congrats to one of our great, always-helpful Mefi scientists, who will receive from me this cool bacteriophage coffee cup
(if I can persuade the artist to create another one), or similar phage-branded useful and/or cool item to delight the soul of a Blasdelb.
In second place, gelatin
has boldly gone where no Mefite has gone before, winning the runner-up position with a SSTSLYT – seasonal Star Trek single-link YouTube post
of Picard and the crew singing "Let it Snow" – with a little help from the video editor. Such enterprise should not go unrewarded, and Zarq will make it so with a $10 gift certificate from Amazon.
whisper behind, and true to his Metafilter nom de guerre

takes the bronze with his in-depth look at America’s conspiracy theory culture in Might As Well Have Been

Finally, I'd like to award my personal favorite to Iridic
for his post pointing out The Readings of Elizabeth Klett
and other excellent Librivox readers, and spawning a great thread with more recommendations. Since it looks like Iridic was recently seeking short stories by lesser known authors
, my prize will be Mefite Sokka shot first
's story anthology Puzzle Box e-book
(see the Mefi Mall
Happy first week everyone; go forth and post and vote!
