From the TED Prize Session: From stage just now, SETI legend Frank Drake announced the new project SETI Quest — a place to build a network of committed Earthlings who want to help in the hunt for extraterrestrial life. It’s the result of Jill Tarter’s 2009 TED Prize wish.
How can you help? From the site:
If you are good at writing efficient code and like to participate in open source projects — we need you. If you are knowledgeable about digital signal processing and pulling signals out of noise — we need you. If you are eager to use your eyes, ears, and mind to help us find anomalies in the data streaming from the Allen Telescope Array — we need you. We need your help to manipulate and explore the real-time data from the telescope, and to create the environments that will allow global participation by Earthlings of all ages.
