From the article...
A more fruitful strategy would be to target our searches, Forgan suggests. We may not be able to hear leaked signals, but we could still pick up a deliberate beacon from a civilization that wanted to announce its presence. A telescope dedicated to searching for such a beacon, like the Allen Telescope Array in northern California, would improve the odds to one in 10 thousand.
Which is precisely what we're about. We're not trying to pick up an Alien's broadcast of "I Love Lucy" or a cell-phone rant.
I think the Edinburgh guys should have looked at what people are doing before saying anything.
But, then, they did grab a headline for their 15 minutes...
