I saw this link on Slashdot (and it was also on Ekr's blog):


It appears that the quantum crypto meme just won't go away.

Bob Gelfond of MagiQ promises us that for only $100,000, plus monthly
leasing of a dry fiber optic home run between your end systems, you
can have security that isn't even as good as what nearly free software
will give commodity computers over the unsecured public internet.

I wonder if this idea is ever going to die. My guess is it will, but
not until the people who have thrown away their money investing in
this technology go bankrupt.
