I will never again work for any company anywhere in the world with any presence in Silicon Valley and its jackass inhabitants. I am now a supercomputer system administrator.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
There is no way that there cannot be extraterrestrial life. It is not if we will discover it, but when, and if it will discover us first. Who knows. I don't think this planet is ready for that yet. Too many wackos, religious freaks and assorted candidates for the Darwin Gene Pool Elimination Lotto. I don't think we should be purposefully transmitting any beacons, I think if anyone is listening and are close by they heard of us a long time ago. I run Seti@Home because its interesting, costs me nothing and I feel I am contributing to something very worthwhile.
