Personal background
I'm from Georgia, in the United States. I enjoy music and recreational math such as number theory. Programming is my occupation, when there is a job to be had.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I like SETI@home because I like to see computers actually computing something; word processing and similar "productivity" tools are such a waste of resources. I find it unlikely we'll detect ET in the next 10 years or so - anywhere past that, improving technology makes it hard to predict much. Because of the massive timescale of the universe, it may be that our first encounter is as archaeologists, not ambassadors.
