The meta-post for the second Carl Sagan blog-a-thon

(NOTE: I will be updating this list periodically throughout the day, as I find new posts.)

I sent you an e-mail announcing my blog post several days ago but perhaps you did not receive it.

Anyway, my post is in Flemish (I also participated last year) and can be found here:

Mine is going to be late. . . . But I did write a retrospective on last year's Sagan-a-thon which people might find interesting.

A little tribute in Spanish

Persona: Carl Sagan

He'll be remembered, even in countries like México.

Hi, Joel ... I put up a post that eases into the Sagan legacy:

Cosmic Log: Science vs. religion vs. politics
Blake Stacey said…
Finally! Technical difficulties surmounted, I give you A True Story.
Podblack said… - hope this is of use. A feminist, literary attitude towards what Sagan has left us.

A Girl Called Ellie.

I found out about this a little late, but I threw together some of my thoughts about the personal connection I felt with Carl Sagan, although we've never met.
Here's my contribution:

Please include my post in which I speak of a very brief meeting I had with Dr. Sagan when I was only 13 years old. It's not that big a deal, I just said hi after a lecture he gave, but to me it was somethign I'd never forget.

I met Carl's work as a seminary student. He turned me into an almost instant atheist. I have since become excellent friends with his son Dorion. He has left the world a far better place, and one can only wonder how much better off our planet would be if there were more like him. I have a dedication page entitled "In memorium" that can be read at
