This Day in Tech History – SETI (Phone Home???)

November 20

I remember coming across an article in the 2000’s that asked Geeks around the globe to share their computing power with SETI@Home and I gladly shared my pitiful excuse for a Pentium II with the powers that be to help crunch the numbers but 30 years ago was the birth of the SETI Program (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) has been beaming information out into the far reaches of space and listening intently for a response all this time.  If you want to know more about SETI or if you would like to share your computing power…the system is still out there in the hands of the super brains at UC Berkley in California!
