Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Do you think extraterrestrial life exists?
-Yes

If so, when and how will humans discover it?
-Hopefully within my lifetime, I think through the detection of EM signals or a direct encounter.

What are the possible benefits and dangers of such a discovery?
-Had to say, I think we will find out soon enough.

Should humans transmit a beacon for others to find?
-Yes, definitely

If so, what information should we send?
-Age, sex and location

Why do you run SETI@home?
-I think it is interesting, a good screensaver and it has potential benefits for everyone.

What are your views about the project?
-I think it is ingenious and I hope it is successful

Any suggestions?
-No, not right now. Buy me a faster computer?
