Suzanne's talk in Teleplace slashdotted - Separating Hope From Hype In
Suzanne Gildert's talk on Quantum Computing in Teleplace of September
4 has been covered by Slashdot Hardware Story | Separating Hope From
Hype In Quantum Computing.
Of course the "Slashdot effect" (via Next Big Future | Quantum
Computing: Separating Hope from Hype) has caused a massive surge of
visits to the article on the teleXLR8 website and especially the
teleXLR8 video channel on blip.tv (several thousands of video views in
a few hours).
As it is usually the case, the comments on Slashdot are often
off-topic and sometimes rude (there are some very interesting comments
though). But I think a popular site like Slashdot is very useful to
bring science closer to the citizens (this is not a "hardware story"
but a fascinating and accessible scientific lecture), and I am happy
that many people have had the opportunity to watch the talk on video.
