Surprise of the Day: ScienceSunday nomination via Allison Sekuler who writes:
“I went to vote in the Media Tapper 1st Annual Spirit of Google+ and was pleasantly surprised to see our page, ScienceSunday , listed as a nominee in one of the categories: Best Business Page! We’re not actually a business – we’re just a collection of scientists – me, Robby Bowles , Rajini Rao , and Chad Haney – with a passion for sharing all the great science-related art, stories, videos, blogs, and song the G+niuses on Google+ pass our way. But it’s still an incredible honour to be included with some of the other great nominees in that category. It’s also great to see a number of other science pages/scientists including across the various categories. This is one of the things that makes Google+ such a wonderful place to be – people here really understand that science is everywhere and in everything 😉
Thanks to all the regular and irregular contributors to ScienceSunday – we are nothing without you!”

Time To Vote
Thanks to all who have made the nominating process for 1st Annual Media Tapper Spirit of Google+ such a success. So many of you took the time to let us know which people you felt emulated the spirit of what makes Google+ such a great social gathering place at both our article and our G+ page. But now it is time to vote and help us find the top three Plussers in each category.
As a reminder, here are the 10 categories we chose for this year’s awards:
#1 G+ Photographer: Under 50K followers
#2 G+ Photographer: Over 50K followers
#3 G+ Hangout User

Not only were you all kind enough to nominate your favorites but you also gave us some wonderful feedback as to other categories we can add next time. Thank you!
We ended up putting our heads together, putting down names, adding things up and found 10 contenders for each category.
Now the fun really begins: it’s time to vote.
Click on the link below and you will be taken to our survey, Spirit of Google+ Awards, courtesy of Polldaddy. There you will find the names of 10 people per category. Choose one in each category and when finished simply hit the submit button. That’s all there is to it!

Good luck to everyone and again, thank you for participating!
We are sorry to say that it is impossible to list every nominee with links to their G+ page so that you may have a better idea of who to vote for.
