And now the award for best book based on a... blog?

Categories: Blogs/Web
Nominees are being sought for the first ever Lulu Blooker Prize, an award created to honor books based on blogs, a trend almost as unnerving as turning pop stars' oeuvres into Broadway musicals. Examples include Star Trek actor Wil Wheaton's memoir "Just a Geek" and former D.C. staffer Jessica Cutler's "The Washingtonienne." A trio of judges: Cory Doctorow (Boing Boing), Robin Miller (Slashdot), and Paul Jones (iBiblio) have been drafted to select winners in fiction, non-fiction, and comic-blooks, with an overall winner chosen as well. Details for submitting your blook for the prize can be found at, so start blogging, then write a book about it. And, yes, Flooks, films about blooks, are on the way, Chuck.
