Quantum of Solace
Details on the new Bond film… This is partly why I am so intrigued by quantum cryptography. It satisfies my “inner spy.” In fact, I seriously would have considered it as a career, but MI6 (SIS) and GCHQ seem more glamorous than the CIA and NSA but I’m American (I mean, just check out that sleek new building MI6 occupies!). On the other hand, the CIA just went “green” and they have Kryptos…
Speaking of Bond, on Mythbusters the other night they tested the Walther P99. I had thought they’d gone back to the PPK in Casino Royale, but apparently, even though the publicity shots were done with a PPK, he used a P99 in the movie (the P99 holds more than twice the number of bullets).
And, while you’re here, note the Quantum Cryptography button on the right. I’m teaching a class in it this semester and am partially using this blog as a method of providing interesting links and, perhaps, interesting discussion.
