Nice article on keeping up the good fight.

- The wonderful thing about math is certainty. Every math problem has an answer. But entrepreneurship is different. There are no laws that bind the problem set. There are infinite paths to contemplate when creating something new. Even worse, the paths keep changing.

- And know what? Uncertainty is a bitch. It plagues every plan you hatch, and it eats away at any attempt for peace of mind. For me personally, uncertainty caused the greatest amount of interference as I attempted to live my life...

- Start by letting go of concerns for things you already know. Over the years, I have tried to reduce my time spent "checking" things that don't move the ball forward or can be delegated to others. Daily sales, website traffic, what people are saying on Twitter, analytics for our customers, team progress on projects, and the list goes on. To create what will be, you must remove yourself from the constant concern for what already is.

TEDx video on artisanal beer.

I would try Chad Henderson's beer just because of this video.

Michio Kaku: Years ago, we physicists predicted the end of Moore’s Law that says a computer power doubles every 18 months. But we also, on the other hand, proposed a positive program. Perhaps molecular computers, quantum computers can takeover when silicon power is exhausted. But then the question is, what’s the timeframe? What is a realistic scenario for the next coming years?

Quantum Computing Promises New Insights, Not Just Supermachines
Essay Scott Aaronson NYT

When people hear that I work on quantum computing — one of the most radical proposals for the future of computation — their first question is usually, “So when can I expect a working quantum computer on my desk?” Often they bring up breathless news reports about commercial quantum computers right around the corner. After I explain the strained relationship between those reports and reality, they ask: “Then when? In 10 years? Twenty?”

Video: On January 14, 2011, Caltech hosted TEDxCaltech, (15:05) an exciting one-day event to honor Richard Feynman, Nobel Laureate, Caltech physics professor, iconoclast, visionary, and all-around "curious character." Scott Aaronson is an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT. Scott's research interests center around fundamental limits on what can efficiently be computed in the physical world. This has entailed studying quantum computing, the most powerful model of computation we have, based on known physical theory.

He also writes a popular blog,

The creator of the Complexity Zoo, an online encyclopedia of computational complexity theory.
