BTW, this post reminded me to ask if anyone on list has watched the show
"Devs" yet?  If not, I'd highly recommend it as it's very extropian
friendly and centers around a quantum computing initiative.  I don't want
to give away any spoilers (and would recommend not reading anything on it
prior to watching).  It's by Alex Garland of Ex Machina fame.
