Just your ordinary average guy, been plugging away at collage for amny years (since 83).
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
1. Yes ETI exists, I think the most likely way it will be discovered will be looking for it. I think , without exception, that discovery of ETI will not hurt us.
2. Yes, if for no other reason than some one has to start the Galatic Libary!!!
3. Because it's fun.
