  3. A new Theory Blog! It will emphasize applications to Global Health Metrics! Author is Abraham Flaxman! The website is linked to by our site.
  4. A new James Bond Movie will be out soon Quantum of Solace. The Plot: Bad guys build a quantum computer and begin factoring numbers and breaking codes, but then Lance Fortnow and Scott Aaronson write a paper that shows their approach is flawed!


  1. Usually these lists are longer... I like that this one is short and has an excellent punchline :)

  2. Oh man, I would go see that movie at least five times.

  3. I would buy the DVD and make cookies for Lance and Scott.
