One thing John didn't mention is that Gershenfeld and Chuang foresee
these devices as being 'liquid computers'. In fact, the brief
write-up of this in the 18 Jan Science News is entitled "Brewing a
Quantum Computer in a Coffee Cup" which Gershenfeld quipped might be
possible "due to the even heating characteristics of java".
