"The physical processes that take place on a quantum level obey such sophisticated mathematical models that they cannot be analysed by means of today's computers because of the computational limitations of these devices."
Humanity is poised to go through a quantum computing revolution, just as we are still in the midst of the classical computing revolution. Quantum computers though are much more powerful, they compute with the complexity of the universe itself. With them we can answer unimaginable questions and build once impossible artifacts. I would ask you appreciate the grandeur of the early breakthroughs. After all remember the trajectory of the last revolution: clunky vacuum tubes in a room to the networked machine you're reading this on now.
Hope you're ready for a computing revolution more disruptive than the one we're already in!

My response to Jeremy Rifkin's new book "Zero Marginal Cost Society." We are transitioning to a new form of economy, one that has the potential to better all of humanity. Yet there is a specter looming large over the dream. Currently value derived from data, the new "oil" of our time, is still fundamentally centralized. A handful are the lords of the world with the rest of us their unwitting serfs. To build a better more just future we must move beyond network feudalism.

Along with recreational narcotics, this trend will extend into biotech realms of cognitive enhancement and physical enhancement/modification (biohacking). The current legal system might as well not exist at this point since it's endlessly behind and won't catch up without massive overhaul. We're in for a bumpy ride.

Consciousness comes from something being more than the mere sum of its parts. The Internet is crossing that threshold quickly.

Piece I wrote to start off my blog about future trends: "A New Economy From Wearables: View-Sharing"
Check it out and stay tuned for more topics from robotic soldiers, quantum computing, synthetic biology and more!

Been working on a venture, CanCoverIt, which desperately needs a new website. I'm looking for something intuitive and powerful that can be managed by mere mortals. If you or someone you know can help, please contact me. Thanks
