Hello Nick...slightly off-topic, and yet not, I was wondering if you'd seen this yet...pretty neat if you ask me!



Hey Nick. You're not blogging enough, man. I really enjoy your posts, wish there was more of them. Take care!


Ann Druyan is known for saying some pretty poignant, beautiful things... I've been often moved by here words before.

Nick, thank you so much for affording the listeners of Galactic Watercooler (among whom I count myself) a chance to hear you. The interview with you and Ann was indeed poignant, uplifting, and a wonderful tribute to your dad. At GWC we members often refer to ourselves as a "digital family", and by interview's end, I'm sure more than a few now consider you both as part of that family as well. Thank you again.


I really like your blog, too! You should update more!

While I'm here, may I ask a random question? I have a dog, and today was curious if Dr. Sagan ever had a pet. Was he a dog person or a cat person? Did he not have time to keep a pet? I know, that's such a random thing to ask, and I guess it's not very important, but since animals are a big part of my life, and I just LOVE Carl Sagan's work, it was something I was curious about! Thanks!
