Space Elevator Game Media Roundup

There have been many, many articles and blog entries which have been published over the past several days discussing the 2006 Space Elevator Games.  I’m going to list them all in this posting as, while the articles aren’t exactly the same, the theme of them generally are.  If I run across an article that has a decidedly different take on things, I’ll break it out into a separate post.  Otherwise, you’ll find them accumulated here.

I’ll be listing them by date they were published and will keep this posting up-to-date, at least over the next few weeks.  If you spot a duplicate article (many times a particular publication will just reprint someone else’s story – giving credit, of course), please let me know and I’ll pull it.  We have enough originals that we don’t need the duplicates 🙂
