Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I run SETI@home because I want to be "part of" the science, instead of sitting on the sidelines and watching it. I also want to show my support for science in general, and this is a great way to do that!

I started helping the SETI@home project when I was like 11 - that was 24 years ago... I was introduced by my brother who is 7 years older than me to the project. I thought it was super cool that we could crowdsource computer power in the late 1990's to search for extraterrestrial signals from outer space.

I missed some years in-between now and then, but I started a new account in 2010 and have now (with SciManDan's help), created a team that is approaching around 100 members (so far).

It's a collaborative effort, but there's no reason we can't have some healthy competitiveness, and to that extent, I want team SciManDan to be the #1 data cruncher for the SETI@home project.
