Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
There's a great probability that life elsewhere exists, but it may be too far away in spacetime for us to make contact, at least with present knowledge and technologies.

Not much point in transmitting beacons - anyone able to listen will either be fascinated by 1950s TV or consider it a good excuse to avoid us.

Why do I run SETI@Home? Every little helps. There's a real need to extend the project to cover the whole sky, especially the bits towards the galactic centre.
