Next month, December 20, 2006 will mark the tenth anniversary Carl Sagan's passing. In his honor, I am organizing a special memorial "blog-a-thon" among Sagan's fans throughout the blogosphere. If you're a Sagan fan with a blog, you can participate by posting something related to him on or near that date. Read or reread a Sagan book and review it; discuss cool things that you've done that's been influenced by him; pontificate on one of the many topics he treated (SETI, astronomy, critical thinking, the history of science, human intelligence....), or post about something completely surprising. Contact me by email or by leaving a comment, and then when the date approaches, I will create a meta-post that links to all the stuff people are doing, providing a network of the participating bloggers.
A list of Sagan stuff online that may be a source of ideas.

Publicity for the blog-a-thon includes Cornell University's Chronicle Online, The Ithaca Journal, digg, bOING bOING, and countless blogs. Welcome, everybody, and thanks to all who have publicized it!
See also another very cool new project, Celebrating Sagan; if you're not a blogger, you can contribute your memories and stuff via email.
Update: the meta-post is here!
