IÂ´m an european boy living in Spain, finishing my computer engineering degree while I work part time as a research assistant for the IESE Business School. IÂ´m pretty bussy building myself a personal and professional future that I can do less for the human community. Running SETI@home is part of what I can do.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I think that people think too much in local and practical things, such as what will they do the next Saturday night or if it will be rainy tomorrow. We, who are lucky to have our most basic needs resolved, should invest some of our time in making the human race go forward, and do things like asking ourselves "Are we alone?". The evident answer is "no", so we can ask us "Who are they?" "Where are?" and "Can we hear of them?". Running SETI@home is part of what we can do to answer that questions. After all, why spend your CPU time rendering a nice ball which is going from one point to another on the screen when you can do something productive?
