Software Architect and Astrophysicist Brian Beckman has a new job at Microsoft. No longer working with Erik Meijer on cutting edge developer tools and programming languages, Brian has joined a very small team of distinguished engineers and technical fellows
that seeks to create a new product for Microsoft, code named Quark.
Brian and his big brained colleagues have produced a prototype quantum computing device that takes the notion of parallel computation to a whole new level... The really interesting thing here is that Brian has determined that theoretical phyiscs has completed. What does that mean, you ask? Well, only Dr. Beckman can explain it in terms that everybody will be able to comprehend.
Tune in. This is very big news. Computing will never be the same thanks to Brian and his colleagues working in the newly formed (and apt-named!) Quantum Unreality Computation Group.
