Vince Smith wins 2008 Ebbe Nielsen Prize

As spotted by dechronization, GBIF has made public that Vince Smith has won the 2008 Ebbe Nielsen Prize. The award "recognises a researcher who is combining biosystematics and biodiversity informatics research in an exciting and novel way."

For Vince the award brings kudos, recognition, and €30,000 (just a little less than the fortune implied by dechronization ;) ).For me, it's a opportunity for unseemly basking in reflected glory (Vince is a former PhD student of mine, and also spent a Wellcome Trust Fellowship in my lab in the heady days when I cared about lice). If you haven't seen it, check out Vince's blog, and the Scratchpads.
