Quantum Mars Theory with Dr. Jonathan Paprocki

This week we’re joined by Dr. Jonathan Paprocki, who explains the current state of quantum computing as well as why it is important for Urbit to consider the ‘quantum apocalypse’ and be prepared for it. We also discuss with him his views on how Urbit might evolve to encompass previously unconsidered forms of anarchic or communistic governance via Urbit’s unique and still-developing network.
