Quantum Bayesian Networks

I hack, therefore I am

Suzanne Gildert — a female MacGyver, the next Q in James Bond movies, Walter Mitty in the operating room — alerts us to the existence of hackerspaces, via her very inspiring blog, Physics and Cake. Being a P.G. Wodehouse fan, a hackerspace sounds to me like a Drones Club or a Junior Ganymede Club for nerds like me. Awesome.

Your local ham radio club is another cool, non-academic club for socializing and collaborating with others that share your passion for technology.

Lastly, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my all time favorite science (non-fiction) TV series, “The Secret Life of Machines”…pure hacker bliss.

Alas, in quantum computation, hardware hacking is too expensive (it requires facilities and equipment that costs millions of dollars). Software hacking is quite feasible, but, for some sociological reason that eludes me, it has failed to catch on in earnest.
