Replying to @skdh @earltcampbell
You've asserted the superiority of your own conjecture/analysis (as a nonexpert), claimed that any evidence-based analysis by those in the field can be dismissed as social reinforcement, and ignored the technical rebuttals offered. The central character is always you in this.

This is complete rubbish. I have neither "asserted superiority" nor have I claimed that any "evidence based analysis" can be "dismissed as social reinforcement". Why not try to find out what I am saying to begin with before talking nonsense?

I can point to your dismissal of 's observations on Twitter as social reinforcement. I can point to the fact that when tech rebuttals are offered (e.g. cost/ch of electronics dropping 20-50x) you ignored the argument and asserted your $10Bn cost figure must be right.

You claimed to induce dismay among experts by exposing the truth behind your field but ignore the open discussion on the same topic for years. You write experts "need a plan" and ignore arguments that such analyses could exist because you haven't seen them.

I have talked to people who told me they have such plans, thank you. I am merely not impressed.

"You better be prepared and you are not." you said. "You need a plan. You don't have one." Presented with evidence "I am merely not impressed" Once again, your view of the superiority of your own analysis & dismissal of expert views, even in the face of tech rebuttals.

Where is your "rebuttal"? Show it to us. Should be easy enough, no? Put something behind your big words and empty claims.

Earl wrote a detailed technical rebuttal at the top of this thread. I rebutted central aspects of your argument (scaling cost, role of electronics miniaturizarion in cost reduction, whether our community is open or not abt challenges). See my writing on the topic above as well.

Uh, excuse me, the supposed "rebuttal" isn't about what I wrote to begin with. I know of NISQs of course and I also know that some people are more optimistic than that the ~ million, so what's your point really?

I've made it: You are dismissive of technical critiques (e.g. QEC, qubit counts ⬇️, cost scaling) You speciously present our community as failing to acknowledge/address challenges. You dismiss expert views as tainted or simply inferior to your own analysis. Thanks for writing.

I have acknowledged your "criticisms" & explained why they are irrelevant. I do not "dismiss" expert views. I have no idea what makes you think so. I do present your community as failing to address challenges, not as failing to acknowledge challenges. You prove my point.

I started an entire company to address the challenge of instability of quantum hardware and help accelerate the pathway to commercially relevant systems. My whole career (and those of many others cited) is focused on solving these challenges. Again you are simply dismissive.
