As a refinement to the Medgadget MedBlog Awards, Rita at MSSP has an idea:
Since MedGadget started this, the onus is on them to create, manage, and of course fund the Academy of Blogging Arts and Sciences.
Nominations shall be restricted to select members of the Academy. I’m not sure how they’ll be selected, that would be Medgadget’s problem to figure out. (That’ll teach you for coming up with a good concept!) Once the field has been narrowed to no more than five nominees in each category, all members of the Academy of Blogging Arts and Sciences shall be permitted to vote for one Bloscar winner in each category.
I think it’ll get somebody a nice cease-and-desist letter from the Oscar folks, but as there’s only about 30 of us, what are the chances of that?
