SightSpeed Used to Talk to Aliens

Gualala, CA - Earlier this morning, the Foundation for Real Extraterrestrial Alien Colonies, or FREACS, had communication with the outside world. While attempting to connect to their their home offices in Berkeley, FREACS founder Lou Natic connected accidentally to an alien.

"I'm pretty sure it wasn't human," Lou bemused. "It had, you know, one of those big heads and eyes you always see in pictures."

Natic, a native son of Berkeley who founded FREACS over 2o years ago after viewing Steven Spielberg's movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," has pioneered emerging technology to send communications signals into outer space, most recently with SightSpeed, a Berkeley company with software to send audio and video over the internet. Spokesman for SightSpeed Peter Zottolo stresses the software was originally created for human-to-human communications. Lou Natic thinks differently. Although he routinely uses SightSpeed to communicate with his colleagues, his idea was to send audio and video to someone else.

"It's time to embrace the possibility of communication with all organic life. What I saw was only the beginning, I hope, of an ongoing interaction with other intelligent creatures." Before Natic could record the transmission, the call abruptly ended, leaving him no concrete evidence of the contact.

After 10 years of studying and practicing in Berkeley, Lou Natic decided to move to Gualala.

"It's the town that sounds closest like an alien word," he explains. "Besides, there's already too many freaks in Berkeley."
