I’m Not Ready To be a Mormon

Filed under: Uncategorized — rrtucci @ 7:27 pm

I was wandering more or less aimlessly through the Internet when I came across a Quantum Computing themed Meetup being held roughly monthly near San Francisco (in Mountain View CA) . So, in my infinite wisdom, I decided to suggest the two topics shown below. Zero takers so far. I’ve included below a gif of their webpage because I expect they’ll be erasing my suggestion any day now. Hmm, these Mormon-like proselytizing gigs are harder to do than it looks. I better stick to my day job.

On a happier note, my newest QC research project is going fabulously. I still have to tie a lot of loose ends, but I’m pretty sure it will fly. I can’t say much about it right now because my competitors are very dishonest and loose lips sink ships. Suffice it to say that it’s an awesome (to me) application of (mathematical) Group Theory to quantum computing algorithms. I’ll probably take my usual route of filing for a software patent, and then, soon thereafter, releasing software and an arXiv paper about it.

  1. Still heading for success ha?! You just don’t get it. You should instead search for the exact opposite. Elia Canetti once wrote in his classic “Masse und Macht”, “We don’t just want to exist. We also want to exist where others don;t exist any more”! http://en.alalam.ir/news/1585552

  2. Angel: We all look for some kind of success. The alternative is suicide. I think this Canetti guy was talking about seeking power. I don’t think the lust for power drives me very much at all. There are several powerful things that drive me that I don’t want to get into because they are too personal. But one of them is an almost corny scientific curiosity and awe at the beauty of math and science, instilled in me at an early age by my venerated high school math teacher Prof. Jose Garrido, and also by some of my high school friends.

  3. Best of luck with your latest endeavor! Looking forward to reading about it when it’s ready for prime time.
