OK folks, first of all, stop emailing me about this! Aiiieeee!
Second, the deal is that there are rumors floating around the ether that some sort of signal was picked up by the Arecibo radio telescope, and that folks from SETI (the Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence) are working on it.
I have left messages with some friends of mine at SETI, and if/when they call me back I'll let you all know what I know.
Until then, feel free to speculate, but also be prepared to find out that this was all made up, exaggerated, or misinterpreted.
Or it might be real. Tee hee! We'll know soon enough.
