Im an average person, from Saudi Arabia. I was born in 1973, and work in a petrochemical plant. I've been a SETI@home member since 2 Jul 1999. Still looking for a signal, hope that we find one before 2030, if not i guess we will have to just keep on looking. Wish everyone the best of luck. :)
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I run seti because I really believe we can't be alone in this vast universe. Also, I believe when the signal is found someday, the whole world will change.
My views on the project is that it is heading in the right direction, although I believe it is not getting the publicity it deserves in countries outside the US & Canada. It will take the efforts of many people around the world to join the search. And if in the end we don't find anything at least we can say we tried.
