Hi Paul;

I believe, in part, Allen was referring to the recent aperture engine
discussion, which he has followed with interest. Certainly this is the only
forum that has had much in way of a discussion on it. Of course, alighting to
such uninformed disparagements as 'technobabble' does much to drive the
informed towards more rational discussions elsewhere.

Chip, thanks for faxing your paper to me last night. It's great!
I am especially pleased to see that you work out what WE can do now,
or will be able to do in the future, and THEN turn it around to figure
out what we should be trying to detect from eti.
I think the seti field needs a LOT more of that sort of thinking!
Our present searches are not sufficiently based on that logic.... >>
