I am 71 years old, married and retired. Well, from one job and starting a new one.
I have been a machinist, prototype technician, prototype engineer, engineering technician and a department manager during the last 50 years.
While doing these jobs, I also worked in Engineering IT as well, helping with emergency situations as necessary.
My hobbies are computing, tinkering and gardening.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I believe that there is other intelligent life out there and that we should do everything that we can to find it.
I suspect that perhaps other intelligent life has already discovered us and has chosen not to be sociable yet.
They are probably not a threat, but who knows?
I run SETI to help in my little way to find that intelligent life and I don't feel like I'm wasting energy for nothing in my off time.
Seti is a fantastic idea and not just the searching either. To band so many computers together and utilize that tremendous power, is rather amazing.
