Quantum Computing For Dollars

One of the students in the class I am teaching this summer, after we had covered Simon’s quantum algorithm, had this interesting encounter:

I met Dan Simon at Pro Sports Club in Bellevue yesterday and here is the short dialogue we had:
Student – “Your algorithm is giving me so much of a headache this weekend!”
Dan Simon – “You know, I really apologize: I was young, needed the money, I just had to do that…”

Nice.
