Greetings ETI, how are you doing?

I was listening to the podcast of “Go Ask your Father” on This American Life which featured a story about Allen Tough told by his son.  Professor Tough’s life’s work has be the search for contact with extraterrestrial intelligence. In the podcast his son recalls how his father would listen repeatedly to the Pink Floyd album “Dark Side of the Moon”. I suppose this choice of music might prove inspirational. Personally I thought the whole “Hearts of Space” catalog would have been a better choice.

Previous contact attempts were made using  radio transmissions and the gold anodized plaques placed on the Pioneer spacecrafts. But let’s face it, everyone must know by now that the real communication medium is the internet. The aliens are probably not only reading blogs but uploading cat videos to YouTube.

If you are an alien or know one, you may sign into the site. The URL is http://www.ieti.org/. Give a listen to the SETI song on that site.

  1. Last time I checked, leaving directions to your house on an interstellar craft, with your attatched picture, fits into the Dont-tell-a-random-species-where-you-live catagory. Very amusing.
