Profile: Stewart Dickson

Personal background
I have been creating

Physical Artifacts from CyberSpace since 1989 as an offshoot of my
profession -- 3-D Computer Graphics Programming for the Film Industry,
since 1984.

I believe in Internet Pronoia -- that lurking feeling that somewhere
people are conspiring to help you.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Sometime between 1981 and 1983, I discovered a copy of "THE POSSIBILITY OF
Representatives, Ninety-Fifth Congress, revised October, 1977. If I am not
mistaken, this is one of the original documents which launched SETI. I
thought this document was absolutely wonderful when I first saw it, and I
still think so -- in part, in deference to its intended audience, that the
document is almost more Art than Science.

I am in favor of networking, in the broadest sense of the word, and I favor
the search to discover the true nature of our place in the Universe. SETI
contributes to this.

SETI@home is the kind of project the Internet was made for.

I own two fairly fast and serviceable computers, which are idle when I am
at work and asleep. I would like to think that my contribution to SETI@home
might justify an always-on LAN-WAN Internet connection at my home -- to
enable me to give back to the Internet.
