The excellent - and widely praised - 3 Quarks Daily has made in to the top ten finalists in the prestigious Koufax Awards. 3 Quarks Daily say:

If you haven't done so already, we would very much appreciate it if you would consider taking just a few moments to send an email to and put the word "Koufax" in the subject line. The body of the email should be: "I vote for 3 Quarks Daily for both Best Group Blog AND Blog Most Deserving of Wider Attention."

3 Quarks Daily hopes "to present interesting items from around the web on a daily basis, in the areas of science, design, literature, current affairs, art, and anything else we deem inherently fascinating." For a "filter blog" I sometimes wish they'd filter just a little more! I only need them to bring to my attention three or four things before I start to wonder if they are helping me fight information overload or merely adding to it. But, for all that, I'm a fan. (Oh, and there was a nice piece by Australian poet Peter Nicholson on The Sydney Opera House a couple of weeks back that I should have mentioned.)

  1. Thanks a million, Mark!

    Your point about there being too many things is well-taken. Our excuse is that we cover so many things (science, arts, design, literature, etc.) that it is hard to get away with fewer posts every day, but we will try to limit our output as much as we can. In any case, we appreciate the feedback.
