I'm in my late 50's. It occurs to me as a possibility that barely
practical QC will be
the last great computational hardware leap forward during my working
years. I'm
guessing (I've lived through a lot of changes!) that by the time I'm 70
we'll be in
the "vacuum tube" era or working quantum computers. claims great progress in hardware.

If you are interested, I will be blogging pretty steady about this on
where I will be trying to get the readers to help me understand this
puzzling field!
