Personal background
I was not the first OU person to start SETI@HOME but certainly started when the number of Sooners was low and I thought this was a cool way to use my screensaver. I joined on 30 May 1999 and have been active ever since that.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
People have asked me why I turn many of my computers at the University of Oklahoma to the SETI Project. I was not so sure myself, until I learned about Thomas Pierson, born in Norman, OK and a school of business graduate of the University of Oklahoma, who went on to found the SETI Institute. I like to take pride in Thomas Pierson's role in this huge project by being part of OU's presence in the SETI@Home project. If OU's computers were to be the first to find ETI that would be fantastically appropriate, but a lot of this is like leaving a candle in the window for the visionaries that have kept this quest alive and well. So I keep turning our computers toward SETI. -Scott
