Personal background
Born in Washington, D.C., grew up in suburban Maryland. I'm in my 50's and work in an earth science archival collection in the Rocky Mountain West. Both my husband and I are intrigued and excited by the Seti project. I hope it can be a model for utilizing idle computer time for other mega-projects, such as analyzing data in medical research. A couple years ago I took up woodworking, am now enrolled in a woodworking degree program at a local community college, and am involved in a local/national nonprofit women's woodworking organization; my interest is in making furniture.
Working with wood touches my heart and soul. As I've grown older I keep finding a more spiritual side to such things as woodworking, and also in the great unknowns at the other end of the scale - the universe. With all we're realizing we don't know about life here on earth, how can anyone laugh at the possibility of intelligence "out there"? At work a recent request has involved data possibly showing the presence of man at a site in Mexico 250,000 years ago!!!!!!! If this is anywhere near being accurate, how can there not be more than we know elsewhere!!!!!

Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Why seti@home? why not!! What a great opportunity to participate in a great exploration!! What a great resource to utilize - idle computer time!!! Folks on earth have already sent a message into space - the Voyager spacecraft. I would hope that such messages would be sent periodically, as we finally accept that all life and history is not Euro-centric, and not earth-centered.
