Personal background
Male, 26, Network Administrator. My biggest hobby is probably my job. At least I get to enjoy what I do. I enjoy cooking (and eating, naturally), camping, boating, swimming, sitting on the couch with a movie, my dog Corky, and beer tasting. I know, beer tasting. Sounds like an excuse to drink. I enjoy tasting all different types and textures of beer. I am not a connoisseur, perhaps just your average Joe.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
1) Yeah, I do believe in ET. When and how will humans discover it? I don't think we will be the discovers...I believe we will be discovered. Dangers to this could be many many things. Global disaster, human integration of an alien society. However, it's most likley that what ever ET will be unlike anything we have (or can) imagine. Any life we fine may not be carbon based, which will blow every "life" theory we have out of the water. Location, climate, temperature, atmosphere, gravity...they all played the major role of molding life on earth to what it is today. So, you never know who or what your going to run into.

2) Humans should transmit beacons for others to find. It's like putting a personal add in a newspaper. If you never come out of your house, no one will notice you. The information sent should me minimal vocal communications. I believe that music says the most. And not some hippy 60's stuff either. Animal noises, the sound of the surf breaking, the sound of a water fall. The best chance to connect with another is through a common experience. That's given if anyone recieves the signal can hear, see, or speak themselves. I don't think we can transmit hypnotic telepathoic messages so, we have to make due with what we have.

3) I run SETI@home because I think it's interesting to participate in something big.
