This is cross-posted from News and Headlines, since it’s both news (which goes on News and Headlines) and site-specific (which goes here).
We published this story in our very first issue, barely making the Micro Award deadline. It has also been noted on cnn.com — which is, I think, only the second reference to Bruce on CNN (the other being a book review).
Robert Laughlin is the brainpower and administrator behind the Micro Awards. George Keithley and Clark Brown were judges for the first award; the second award will be judged by Stefanie Freele, Benjamin J. Biesek, and Len Fulton. (Remember Stefanie? She wrote the (now Pushcart-nominated) “James Brown is Alive and Doing Laundry in South Lake Tahoe” in our January issue — the month after Bruce published his award-winning story.)
Congratulations to Bruce, and many thanks to Robert Laughlin and the rest of the Micro Award judges!
