Personal background
I am a grandmother of two and a mother of three grown-up sons. I live in Copenhagen, Denmark. I am 72 years of age and I built my first computer around my 60th birthday.

I am now retired, but I used to be a tv reporter in Danish TV stations. I am still a news buff, though.

My interests are space, science in general, literature, movies, fine art, and cold beers - almost in said order :-D

I like to travel on foot, bicycle, canoe, airplanes, and trains.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I have been hooked on space from my 8th year when I bought my first encyclopedia on the subject, so of course I have to participate in a research project that will change mankind's perception of its place in the Universe should we succeed to find alien intelligence.

I am very pleased with the diversity of scientific research possibilities when using BOINC. I like the idea of searching for evaporating black holes from the birth of the Universe or Einstein's theoretical gravitational waves - just in case SETI@home should be down.
