Threshold‘ is a new tv series that I just started watching. And its pretty cool.

THRESHOLD is a suspenseful drama about a team of
experts who are assembled when the U.S. Navy makes a chilling
discovery: an extra terrestrial craft has landed in the mid-Atlantic
ocean. Dr. Molly Anne Caffrey
is a government contingency analyst whose job is to devise response
plans for worst-case scenarios. In a single instant, her life changes
when one of those plans–THRESHOLD–is activated by Deputy National
Advisor J.T. Baylock.
Armed only with her hypothetical strategy to address the appearance of
aliens on earth, Caffrey now finds herself thrust in the midst of a
global crisis. She hand-picks a team of eclectic specialists to prepare
for first contact: Dr. Nigel Fenway, a disillusioned NASA
microbiologist; Lucas Pegg, a brilliant but neurotic physicist; Arthur
Ramsey, an expert in languages and mathematics; and Cavennaugh,
a highly trained covert operative with a mysterious past. Together,
they decipher the intention of the craft, the fate of the ship’s crew
and begin preparations for the possibility of a crisis situation–an
alien invasion.

Also grab this screensaver, it is a free, open source screen saver run by thousands of
people all over the world. It can be installed on any ordinary or
Mac. When these computers “sleep”, the screen saver comes on and the
computers communicate with each other by the internet to share the
work of creating morphing abstract animations known as “sheep”. The
result is a collective “android dream”, an homage to Philip K. Dick’s
novel Do
Androids Dream of Electric Sheep
.

Anyone watching one of these computers may vote for their favorite
animations using the keyboard. The more popular sheep live longer and
reproduce according to a genetic algorithm with mutation and
cross-over. Hence the flock evolves to please its global audience.
