Before posting this, I did a search for the word "quantum" in the AWESOME hubski search tool which is so good now.

If this kind of thing interests you, check our quantum history. Most of the posts are not tagged quantum.

And for the non-scientists among us, here's a little introduction to the topic:

"Because qubits can represent 0 and 1 simultaneously, they can encode a wealth of information. In computation, both possibilities – 0 and 1 – are operated on at the same time, allowing for a sort of paralleled computation that speeds up solutions.

Another qubit quirk: their properties can be intertwined through the quantum phenomenon of entanglement . . . . A measurement of one qubit in an entangled pair instantly reveals the value of its partner, even if they are far apart – what Albert Einstein called “spooky action at a distance.”
