I'm an IT-Manager, 60 years old, living in Oslo, Norway.
Curiosity I think is the key word to getting onward.
Having been in the IT-business since late 60's and always having been a SF fan, I find it exiting to follow the gallopping development in technology that makes it possible to explore further into the mysteries of what is around us.
It is just so fun to be part of it.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Believing "someone/thing" is out there, I find it facinating and intriguing to be part of and contribute to the dedicated project working methodically trying to analyze the possibility for extraterrestrial intelligence.
The enormouesness of the universe and incredible number of gallaxies awes me and makes me kind if humble.
We can't possibly be alone.
Hope we can approch "them" properly when we find them (or when they find us, which may have happend already).
