10686218 story If ET Calls, Who Speaks For Humanity? 371 Posted by timothy on Sunday March 21, 2010 @04:36PM from the your-call-is-very-important-to-us dept. EagleHasLanded writes "Who speaks for humankind if ET calls on us? Paul Davies, chairman of the SETI Post-Detection Taskgroup, is a likely ambassador. But Allen Tough founded the Invitation to ETI Web site, which encourages ET to make contact via email (and also strongly discourages humans from impersonating ET). But an individual in the UK got over some of the hurdles designed to weed out hoaxers, before finally throwing in the towel."
