Rose Eveleth | Scientific American | 30 November 2011

Joshua Rothman | Boston Globe | 26 November 2011

Good backgrounder on quantum computing. A technology that could

      13. http://b.rw/sMazoi

Belén Fernández | Guernica | 1 December 2011

  reality" [14]Comments

Alexandra Molotkow | Toronto Life | 1 December 2011

"I am part of the first generation to come of age online, and my adolescent
