It’s time to meddle with powers I can’t possibly comprehend. Fortunately, nothing shocks me. I’m a scientist.

I squeezed three Indiana Jones quotes into the title and subtitle! Listen, I have to take a short break from the quantum commentary to address the rumors, e-mails, Facebook messages, tweets, and InMail (and that one snap chat someone sent; you know who you are). You all know by now I’m fascinated with quantum computing, because I never shut up about it.  I figure it’s time to do something about that. Which is why I’m taking a couple weeks off to launch my own entry into the quantum computing fray.

When I left Chaotic Moon, I wanted to start a businesses that would make a difference in people’s lives. My first effort was successful, but there was something missing.

“It’s time to ask yourself what you believe.”

I was up late with my son last week, and The Last Crusade was on TNT or TBS or one of those other late night zombie crack stations. Walter Donovan shoots Sean Connery, and he hits Indy with this philosophical question. I’d been in an introspective mood, because we’d been working on the mission statement for the new project. What do I believe? I decided I believed that my next project needs to empower others to make the world a better place. I know, right? It was 1:30 a.m.

I’m starting a quantum computing company. We will deliver software that I hope empowers thousands of other people to use the power of quantum computing to change the world. To combat the effects of climate change. The find new cures and treatments for diseases. To do all the good I’m not capable of achieving.

Now I’m off to make the final preparations for SXSW 2018. Mark down March 13 on your calendars. In the meantime, I’ve got a keynote to polish, a web presence to establish, a mission statement to finish, and a million other to dos. Who’s helping me attack this next adventure, you ask? I’ve got top men working on it right now. Top. Men. Trust me. This will be like nothing I’ve ever gone after before. will return on March 13th 2018…
