SETI@home Project Scientist Eric Korpela has published a blog entry in the Huffington Post's new science section. Other Berkeley SETI bloggers may follow. Depending upon the response we may only blog there, may restrict blog entries here to things directly related to SETI@home, or we may duplicate the posts here. Let us know what you think.

I checked out the link, found lots of interesting stuff, but nothing about SETI@Home . . .

First, there appears to be some sensitivity among some crunchers for SET@home to confusion between the project and SETI Institute, two separate institutions. As you may know, SETI Institute has been publishing at Huffington Post for quite some time.

Second, Huffington Post is part of America On Line.

Third, Huffington Post seems to be dragging in bloggers like a magnet attracts iron filings.

If you want a separate blog outpost, you should look at Wordpress. If you want a clue about that, ask the guys at WCG project CEP2 up at Harvard. They are about as good as it gets in exploiting all sorts of social media.

The Huffington Post offends me with all of it's politically biased news and commentary. I'm new to SETI Home and I was very excited about it, but if I find more affiliations with Huffington I will probably just stop participating in the project. Sorry, but I have strong feelings about the subject.

And how fast would you leave SETI@Home if you were told that the majority of participants here, are either liberals, communists, or socialists?

Would you detach in micro seconds, seconds, or minutes?

Edit: Interesting first post btw. Coming in here and telling a project scientist in which media he should not publish his articles.

Geeze....
This is a test of the Emergency Moron System. Had there been a real moron in the room, there would've been a small mushroom cloud in the place where the idiot had been standing.

We have a politics section for all you liberal, socialist/ communists. So long as you keep your ideas there and off the main blogs I don't care. I'm not much for the HuffPost blog either but I'm not going to quit SETI just cause you post there. I doubt I'll be seeing your posts over there though.

I've got an rss feed that works for any thread. For example the feed for this
thread would be:

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/rss_thread.php?threadid=66868

It lists the last 9 posts in the thread. I haven't had time to pretty it up, so it displays post times and user IDs as an integer.

You can get an RSS feed of my SETI@home blogs at

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/rss_staff_blog.php?userid=24735

Or my Huffington Post blogs at

That's my feeling too. There have been about 5 people who have written blogs titled "Are we alone?" since the first of the year, so that topic will have to wait.

Thanks for sticking with us for the long haul.
