What You've Been Missing Over At ITInnovation.com

from the lots-of-good-stuff dept

Back at the beginning of December, you may recall that we launched a new website, ITInnovation.com, with sponsorship from Sun and Intel. So far, it's been a lot of fun. While we crosspost some stories on both sites, there are many that just are found there. So, here's a quick listing of a few of the stories you may have missed: There are plenty of other posts as well. We're just getting started over there and ramping up the site nicely so far. So, if you're interested in IT issues and innovation, go check it out.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

      I just read it... thanks Richard, that answered a lot of questions I had about the quantum story. I recommend everyone else read it if they want perspective on what's happening there.

      I didn't realize the D-Wave chips needed to be supercooled? Is that right? (citation please?)

        ah. whoops. I guess if you just go to the D-Wave website:

        D-Wave systems are architected around an innovative processor that uses a computational model known as adiabatic quantum computing (AQC). These processors exploit quantum effects to solve search and optimization problems in a new way. They are fabricated using superconducting metals instead of semiconductors and are operated at ultra-low temperatures in a magnetic vacuum.
