I think once the intelligence on earth is detected, we should see the galaxy wake up all around us in response to this newly discovered threat. We will then be quickly exterminated, before the galaxy goes back to sleep.

I just felt like I must say that Moore's Law will NOT continue. I remember reading an article in the Computer Science building on campus that Gordon Moore said that he regretted coming up with Moore's Law and does not want to be remembered for it. I also remember hearing though I cannot remember where that we will hit a technological plateau, and that the current generation will be frustrated with the lack of advancement while their children will be complacent with it.
