Can I tell you how excited I am about the Pandemic? In the highly unlikely event you haven't heard about it already -- it's a massive transmedia project unfolding at the Sundance Film Festival even as we speak. The anchor is the short film Pandemic 41.410806, -75.54259.

But that is far, far, farrrr from the sum of it. For the people lucky enough to be in Park City at the festival, the Pandemic is happening right now.

If you're not in Park City, though, you can definitely still participate. The HopeIsMissing Twitter account has a helpful how-to-participate summary in the sidebar, and it sounds like a lot of fun is to be had in following the #pandemic11 hashtag.

You can read more in this great WSJ interview with Lance Weiler. Though Pandemic is far from the creation of a single person -- my awesome pals Chuck Wendig and Mark Harris have both also played roles, and I'm sure a lot of other great people have, too.

In the interest of full disclosure, I did contribute a miniscule amount to this amazing project -- but I'm not even marking this as shameless self-promotion, because boy howdy did I have nothing at all to do with how big and awesome this is. Check it out, you guys.
