Quantum commercialisation

Yesterday I was looking up the phone number of a local business in the White Pages for Brisbane. I leafed past Q and was encouraged to see how many local businesses involved quantum technologies. Names I saw included

Quantum quartz
Quantum mechanical
Quantum chemicals
Quantum trading distribution services
Quantum racing industries
Quantum reading learning vision....

Sorry I did not post this on the first day of the month....


  1. Hi Ross;
    add a new perspective to Tully's surface hopping code

  2. I think the ancient Greek concept of "atom" better translates to what we call "quantum". e.g. the quantum of my skin is the skin cell, which at least some of the philosophers would have called the atom. Each biological cell is indivisible by brute force, without losing its atomic nature.
