SETIGuy writes “SETI@home Project Scientist Eric Korpela has responded to many of the allegations made by Higley Unified School District administrator Denise Birdwell regarding the difficulties caused by the installation of SETI@home, which led to the recent firing of the school’s technology supervisor. One of the project’s founders, David Gedye, takes issue with Dr. Birdwell’s claim that ‘an educational institution … cannot support the search for E.T.’ Meanwhile, the fired supervisor denies misusing school computers.”
