The SETI Institute and The Planetary Society have recently
announced support for Optical SETI. This effort is not new
but has been advocated for many years by various people
and in recent years most visibly by Stuart Kingsley who runs
The Columbus Optical SETI Observatory:

The Planetary Society effort will be headed by Paul Horowitz
at Harvard using Harvard's 61-inch (optical) telescope, and
Dan Werthimer at the University of California at Berkeley. In
addition Geoff Marcy will examine his planetary search spectra
for possible continuous laser signals --- all very interesting!
