I am nearly 41, married for nearly 18 years and have two children, a daughter 16 and a son, aged 13.
I work full-time in our local Town Library as a People's Network Manager.
I'm interested in reading, local history (especially Victorian era), archaeology and paleontology (especially the neanderthals), food, travel, food and more food and cinema.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
1. Yes; I think it would be arrogant to presume we are the only life-force in
the whole of the universe. I haven't a clue when we might discover
extraterrestrial life, but I would like to think in my life time! The
benefits would be technilogical/ecological/health etc. (I believe they
would be more advanced than us). The dangers would be the reaction of our
world leaders, especially the United States (OTT - sorry!), and reaction
of fanatical/quasi-religious groups.
2. I think we should transmit a beacon but whatever we transmit I hope it's
3. I run seti@home mainly for fun (my family think I'm bonkers!) but I am
interested and would like to think that I may be a link in any discovery
(very unlikely however).
