First Browser-Based Quantum Computer Simulator Released

neverutterwhen Re:Wait...WTF, crypto dead? P=NP? (61 comments)

Hold on a minute. If it's possible to simulate qubits using, at the bottom, bits, and, if qubits and quantum computing allow for performing NP calcs in parametric time (and hence breaking crypto), then haven't we already been able to do all of these things for decades?

How Social Software Can Improve Democracy

neverutterwhen Re:How Social Software Can Improve Democracy (182 comments)

Umm, did you really just say that? First, the UK didn't exist in 1215. Second, there is absolutely no way in which you can argue that England has been a republic since 1215.

How Social Software Can Improve Democracy

neverutterwhen Re:How Social Software Can Improve Democracy (182 comments)

I didn't say that. I just don't think the Magna Carta had the effect you think it did. The Glorious Revolution of 1688 on the other hand was about when power shifted from the Crown to Parliament, legally anyway. Obviously the Civil War etc had huge practical effects before that. What Magna Carta did was to introduce the concept of the rule of law; it did not arrogate the powers of the monarch to the barons/representatives or whatever it is you're trying to say. I see your point, but you can't keep repeating the phrase 'Magna Carta', especially as we got rid of it just now.
