any #quantumcomputing experts around here?
I'm looking for a good ref about the state of the art from an engineering perspective, how effective current designs are, how many qubits have been isolated at once, etc.
I understand the absolute basics of quantum mechanics and I'm not scared of gauge theory or practical comp sci, if that helps you guess what level you should be aiming at.

And if you're not an expert but would like to see replies to this, please boost!

2020 has been a rough year, no doubt. I want to end the year focusing on some positive thoughts tho!

Let's start a thread with all the *good* and *exciting* things that happened this year.

Share your story!

There are seven days until Christmas. Every day, I will cancel one axiom of set theory, until there are no more axioms, and set theory will be cancelled altogether

I'm spending my Friday night booking in a proctored exam, for which they require me to install the 'ProctorU' browser extension. Which is great, except that it's LITERAL SPYWARE. ☹️
