Discord now has a $3.5B valuation and $100M for a sales pitch lighter on the gaming

Discord wants to be more than just a place for gamers, and is now billing itself as the Slack for users’ social lives. The new pitch, and a new funding round of $100 million at a reported valuation of $3.5 billion, will help the company as it looks to erase its legacy as a home for gamers (and a virtual townhall for white nationalists). Discord shuts down alt-right server and accounts for ToS violations Now, the company has more money at its disposal to monitor its user base and promote ...

The BET Awards celebrate 20th anniversary amid pandemic and protests against systemic racism

Back in April, BET Networks’ president Scott Mills and the producers of the annual BET Awards recognized they’d have to cancel its popular four-day BET Experience and free fan fest at L.A. Live due to the continued spread of coronavirus, but they were adamant that the actual awards ceremony would be presented in some capacity. The crew swiftly pivoted the BET Awards, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, to a virtual broadcast without a live audience. The show will be hosted by comedi...

"My dad launched the quest to find alien intelligence. It changed astronomy."

In 1960, Frank Drake, an astronomer at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, launched Project Ozma, the first scientific effort to listen for radio communications from extraterrestrials. Frank, now 90, is still serious about SETI, writing research papers and advising scientists who are listening to the stars for signs of intelligent life. (I came to know Frank and his lovely and inspiring family while I was working on the vinyl reissue of the Voyager Golden Record; Frank was the technical di...

Scientists Say Most Likely Number of Contactable Alien Civilizations Is 36 (slashdot)

An anonymous reader quotes a report from The Guardian: They may not be little green men. They may not arrive in a vast spaceship. But according to new calculations there could be more than 30 intelligent civilizations in our galaxy today capable of communicating with others. In 1961 the astronomer Frank Drake proposed what became known as the Drake equation, setting out seven factors that would need to be known to come up with an estimate for the number of intelligent civilizations out there.

Experts predict there are 36 contactable alien civilizations. Seriously.

Taking into account what we do know, and mixing in some assumptions about life here, a team of scientists make a prediction.Even if aliens are relatively close by, they and we'd have to be around for over 6,000 years just to chat.Our current tech will likely not allow us to communicate with anyone/thing.
