As a software engineer, i discovered Seti@Home 2 years ago.
This small software follows me everywhere i can install it : home, work,
What are my goals installing it :
1/ Help in a huge FREE scientific program not denying we should be one of the
worlds in the universe.
2/ Let people arround ask the question : "what is this coloured screen saver"
... and more : "how should i get it"
3/ Why should my computer do nothing when it could help to :
EXCHANGE WITH THEM

Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
YES ! extraterrestrial life exists !
Because if you consider the huge number of (even on the known) stars,
there are enought places where some life could exist.
YES ! whe should discover it ... or let them discover us as they may already
have done !.
YES ! The dangers exist for extraterrestrial life ! consider what we did with
blacks in Africa, indians in America ...
YES ! whe should send them an invitation to meet us !
But should they understand ? Why should we not consider extratrestrial life
with some "animals earth like" with no expansion goal like us ! This life is
definitively interesting to, even if it won't reply us "bzzz yes earth, lets
meet us" !!!
Because i wan us to prove we are not alone. I run SETI@Home.
I believe to extraterrestrial life
