Historical perspectives on programming are always entertaining. This one is more so to me because it speaks to the creation of languages and some of the reasons behind the methodologies in use.

In his lecture titled "Quantum Computing and the Limits of the Efficiently Computable," Aaronson discusses what quantum computers are, whether they can be built on a large scale, and what's known today about their capabilities and limitations. He goes beyond quantum computers to touch on speculative models of computation, including closed time-like curves and nonlinearities in the Schrodinger equation — an equation that describes how the quantum state of a physical system changes in time

Here is the main web-site at CMU.

...and the Complexity Zoo:

Unfortunately, I don't see a transcript. The lecture is funny and informative.

Like the way this guy thinks...

I believe that all human languages are "human-complete", i.e. they are all able to express the same complete range of human thoughts, although the expression may become very cumbersome in some cases.

More like relative to your own perspective Wink

As each to his own, so are words.

Hm...just realized I posted this in the wrong thread - meant to post it in the Chomsky thread.

Of course, but how does that change the sentiment?
Your words are vague.
Also, doesn't seem like you read the last section of the article. Confused
