You can now see video from "The Great Debate - Are we Alone?", publicly held by Dan Werthimer and Geoff Marcy on April 30th at UC Berkeley.

Thanks so much for this pointer. I watched the debate. Very interesting. I also found my way courtesy of Dan's remarks to the other videos available from the Astronomy Department, bookmarked the page, subscribed to the email notifications, and became a "fan" on Facebook.

SETI is responsible for so much more than just SETI@home, what with all of the other projects now using BOINC software and those in alpha and beta.

I was crunching for SETI only on one machine, now I feel obligated to add another.

Thanks again.

If you do find your way to this video, there are other really worthwhile videos from Berkeley Astronomy, at http://astro.berkeley.edu/~scroft/iya/ (2009), and at http://scienceatcal.berkeley.edu/lectures (2010).

The quality of the sound is uneven. It is perfect only for The Great Debate.

Also, needing to go to 2 different web pages should be unnecessary; but, there you have it. The videos are definitely worth the trouble.
