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

class=img_thumbleft>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 .
