Tweets in Space: An interview with Scott Kildall and Nathaniel Stern.

Marc Garrett interviews Scott Kildall and Nathaniel Stern about their 
project 'Tweets in Space'. A networked performance event — which beams 
Twitter messages to a nearby exoplanet that might support human-like, 
biological life. Anyone with an Internet connection can Tweet with the 
hashtag #tweetsinspace during the performance time, and their messages 
will be included in their shotgun blast to the stars.

"Tweets in Space beams Twitter discussions from participants worldwide 
towards GJ667Cc - an exoplanet 22 light years away that might support 
extraterrestrial life. By engaging the millions of voices in the 
Twitterverse and dispatching them into the larger Universe, Tweets in 
Space activates a potent conversation about communication and life that 
traverses beyond our borders or understanding." (Kildall & Stern)
