The quantum revolution Mike Lazaridis expects is grand enough. Inventing the mythical quantum computer, which the BlackBerry billionaire has set as the primary goal of his massive investment in the southern Ontario technology hub known as Quantum Valley, could create a trillion-dollar market that Canada stands to dominate. He says the question is when, not if. The scientists say years, not decades.
But this is just the part he thinks he can predict.
There is a quantum revolution coming, an industrial revolution, he said. Its audacious.

I miss my old BB...
I bought a BB Z10. Love it. IMO, it’s better by far than my iPhone.
Marking, to follow the spin
To create a quantum revolution it will be necessary to do it at room temperature!
Like superconductivity, quantum qubits are better if they work at room temperature and not near absolute zero.
“Here’s your 64 qubit quantum processor...and better take a few tanks of liquid nitrogen too”
Blackberry maker Research in Motion (RIM) is a CIA organ. Grown under President G.W. Bush, RIM received exclusive prime contractor status for smartphones for US government officials, employees and US government contractors, all told numbering in the million of smartphones. The why of this is written below.
All of this predates the iphone which was introduced in 2007 at the height of the real estate and stock bubbles. The iphone was the first smartphone with a touch screen interface and no micro keyboard.
Before the iphone there was a US company with a superior smartphone to the Blackberry. The company that made it was Palm located in Silicon Valley. But Palm could not compete against CIA backed Blackberry because the market to penetrate was the enterprise market and that was sewn up by spy contracts to RIM.
The growth of RIM was spectacular and its introduction to the stock exchange made it a darling of Wall St. But it was all based on push email to a server in Canada where the privacy laws did not cover Americans like they do in the US. This was the reason its growth was spectacular. It was capable of reading all emails and recording all voice traffic without violating US laws.
As CIA backed RIM made its founders billionaires from its trade on the stock exchanges it also became a darling to the Canadian people who saw it as Canada’s emerging prominence in technology. Too bad for their illusion, the emergence was all financed by the US government.
RIM struggles now because it is no longer needed...not in the near term because the rubber stamp court in the USA gives NSA all they need for virtual warrantless domestic spying. But if Americans manage to stand on their hind legs and demand a change to the Soviet style snooping on every facet of their lives, then Canada will rebloom in its monitoring technology on Americans, under contract to our CIA.
The takeaway from all this is that Canada is an electronic backdoor haven for monitoring everything we do.
So, you’re a fiction writer?
No I am not a fiction writer. But for sure you are a Brit of some sort likely living in Canada.
And my oh my I must have accidentally spit into your morning bowl of cheerios.
“I bought a BB Z10. Love it. IMO, its better by far than my iPhone.”
I have the BB Torch from a couple years ago. I use it
and just use the iPhone for an extra number I own which
forwards to the BB, which I prefer.
Me? A Brit living in Canada? Wow, you’re brilliant!
