Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
As SETI is a pioneer and one of my first DC projects I had contact with I run it from time to time. Specially when around challenges. Normally I dedicate my GPUs to health/environmental projects.
I'm not sure if we ever really will find something as I'm not sure if ETs will communicate with the physics we assume within the project. But on the other side it also don't hurt to try.
