This blog gets very few visitors. Thus, I was very glad when someone named Kimberley recently sent me the following email, giving me some advice on how to improve the blog so that I get more traffic. I think that she is right, and I’m going to follow her advice.
So, I’m like, Wow! I just red your blog for the first time. I think your blog is totally awesome, dude. Totally.
I am currently learning EVERYTHING about quantum mechanics and quantum computers. In fact, I have a Google Alert set up to notify me whenever there is a new web article with one of the phrases: “spooky action at a distance” or “quantum consciousness” or “the universe is a quantum computer” or “the multiverse”.
I think you should write a blog post explaining quantum entanglement in the brain, or about how Albert Einstein founded the first branch of String Theory.
Articles about quantum computers in educated publications like university press releases, the Huffington Post and Kaku’s blog (cofounder of String Theory) ALWAYS start with a one paragraph explanation of how a qubit can be in two states at once. Do journalists copy each other or what? LOL. It’s okay. I copy on tests too, especially in Inglish class. LOL.
I think all quantum computer articles should start that way because most people I know have never heard of quantum mechanics, so, it’s like, you know, a good idea to start with a complete, comprehensive one paragraph explanation of quantum mechanics and such.
The strange thing is that no matter how many times I read the same explanation of being in two states at once, I don’t quite get it. I wonder why. Hmm. I’m not dumb. LOL. Of course not. I read quite a lot, Tweets and all.
I’ve read in QuantumFactory, the official blog for the Institute for Quantum Computing at Waterloo, that nobody understands quantum mechanics. LOL. I’m like, that is sooo true. I love their blog because, even though it’s written by a scientific institute, it sounds like something I could have written myself. Those guys think just like me.
Unlike QuantumFactory, I see that you sometimes use weird arithmetic equashions, and that you suggest technical books and papers. That is sooo lame. Totally. You don’t really expect me to read equashions on my iPhone, while standing in line at the Mall or Cinema, do you? ROFL. Why can’t you be more like QuantumFactory? I’m sure any institute that can write an outstanding blog like that is quite capable of building a quantum computer.

P.S. For any uneducated people out there who might not know this: OMG=Oh My God, LOL=Laughing Out Loud, ROFL=Rolling On Floor Laughing.
P.S.2- I just received the following message as a comment to this blog post:

OMG, is QuantumFactory all I got for my 100 million dollar investment? Sigh. At least I’ll recoup my money when the Blackberry outsells Android and iPhone.
