Profile: Steven Bielik

Personal background
I am a successful computer scientist, specializing in web application programming, on the enterprise level. I created the dynamic, data-driven infrastructures for successful corporations, including Scientific American Magazine,, and ...

I currently work and play in sunny Pompano Beach, Florida.

I am a graduate of SUNY Albany, class of '97, with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics.

I grew up watching Star Trek (re-runs), Buck Rogers, Voltron, ThunderCats, Galaxy High, Battlestar Gallactica, and Transformers, among other Sci-Fi shows, that were ... out of this world. ;-)

So I was introduced to the stars at a very young age: I wanted to be "The Last Starfighter", and I was the same age as Lion-o when they left Thundera...

Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Life must exist on other planets, or at least in other parts of this multiverse.

The question is: "In what forms does it exist, and what now?"

If those life-forms are intelligent enough to pick-up and return our signals, and assuming they are peaceful, then any knowledge they can pass on (and even the fact that they exist) would benefit the Human race, and all life on earth... assuming the world's governments welcome the help from the "aliens" ... (would they need green-cards?)

In my humble opinion: There are always inherent risks and rewards in all extra-terrestrial encounters ... ;-)

Either way, I'll be happy to know more, and I'll be even happier to help explore; I always wanted to be an astronaut.

* I run SETI@home to get me closer to the stars. *
