The 3DQ finalists -- pretty good company

We are excited that Holly's March 30 post has been chosen as a finalist in the 3DQ best science blog competition.  In this post she writes about what new fossil finds do or don't tell us about the evolution of the hominin foot.  It's a beautiful, thoughtful, learned post, but we do grudgingly have to say that she's in excellent company.  If you haven't read the other finalists yet, you really should give yourself the pleasure.  There's some mighty fine science blogging out there.
