One of my favorite science bloggers and neighbors wrote up his birthday this weekend and included a great interview from Charlie Rose. Boing Boing

Booster Gold also has an interesting collection of Sagan Rememberances

This was one of my favorite pieces

You can see a lot of great Sagan videos on the The Sagan Appreciation Society
