This week's xkcd cartoon is a frightening portent of quantum computing to come. Perhaps the uncertainty principle really is at the core of computing and not just an excuse for knowing the cause of a bug, but not its location. 

 

The Search

Workaround

This week's xkcd cartoon is the reason everyone should learn to program - even just a little bit. Without it the complex plains of the computer savanna becomes a hunting ground for superstition and ways of working that have no basis in reality, our reality at least.

This week's xkcd cartoon makes it clear that being a programmer makes it worse when you fail at anything. Not only do you fail but the chances are that you have an algorithmic explanation of the fail.

This week's xkcd cartoon points out an unsolved problem - users and file systems. If you are a programmer then a hierarchical file system should be as natural as recursion but.. for users?
