The nominations for the Best Medical Blogs of 2006 are currently underway on Medgadget.com.
There is a new voting system this year:"Please meet the judges: Medgadget editorial staff is joined by Sumer from Sumer's Radiology Site, Josh from Kidney Notes, Enoch from Tech Medicine, Maria from Intueri, Orac from Respectful Insolence, Steven from docinthemachine, Bard from A Chance to Cut is a Chance to Cure, Amy from Diabetes Mine and Allen from GruntDoc. Judges will conduct a review of each blog submitted and will vote to sort out those blogs that don't belong to a particular category, or simply splogs (spam blogs.) Furthermore, judges will vote for blogs. Your votes and judges' votes are counted as 50% to 50%. Such a voting system was held at a recent TV show Dancing with the Stars, and details on how the counting was done can be found here."
