Drake vastly underestimated the number of planets in the Milky way... see the results of the Kepler spacecraft. He also totally neglected the two processes involved in distributing people around earth, namely colonization and migration. Travel has changed greatly as well... Magellan's ship took 3 years to go around the planet. The Space station does it in 90 minutes. You get some idea of why I think SETI stands for Silly Effort To Investigate.
