D-Wave's clients include Lockheed Martin, NASA, the US National Security Agency, and Google, each of which paid somewhere between $10 million and $15 million for the thing.

Introduction
I'm working on my first novel, a crime thriller set in New Orleans just before Hurricane Katrina's landfall. 

I love all forms of art, but I'm really into paintings. 

If you're an artist, techie or writer, or participate in NaNoWriMo, add me to one of your circles.
Bragging rights
I love what I do.
