Comment on universal computer language

NOOKANYC Mon, Aug 2, 2010
i think there are 2 parts here that need to be separated out:
universal computer language is something worth pursuing and something we are closer and closer to with every new iteration of html and linux, but this is totally separate from how an alien intelligence would interact with humans and human computer systems.

an alien intelligence with the technology of interstellar travel would have the processing power to decipher any of our languages based on contextual analysis.
