Thanks to my friends I haven't remained totally unaware of what is going on around me in the blogasphere! Linda of Auterific let me know about the current blogburst being sponsored by Instapundit. What is a blogburst did I hear you ask?
Here's the scoop straight from the site.

Following the first BlogBurst of November 29, 2004, we are now in the process of organizing a second Burst for January, 2005.

The date for the BlogBurst is January 27, 2005, and the subject is:

Remembering the Wannsee Conference and the Liberation of Auschwitz

January 27, 2005, marks the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz in 1945. On January 20th, we marked the anniversary of the 1942 Wannsee Conference. In the course of that Conference, the Nazis formalized the Nazi plan to annihilate the Jewish people. Understanding the horrors of Auschwitz requires that one be aware of the premeditated mass-murder presented at Wannsee.

This announcement is aimed primarily at webmasters: if you wish to join, and if you have not contacted me already, please contact me at IsraPundit@yahoo.com.

83 websites, including LGF, joined the first BlogBurst (at least, I know of that number, but there may be more). We would like to surpass this number for January: we currently have 77 participants. You can see posts concerning the November BlogBurst here and here. The list of the January participants is shown at BlogBurst Info.

Thank you, Rachel Ann for posting this. Since Soros is not financing this initiative, I depend on word of mouth to spread the info.

So far we have 99 participants, and I hope that your post will help boost the number further.

Regards from frigid Ottawa, Ont., Canada.
