From what I see, governments don't take space seriously even now (out of
subject: what is the problem with JBIS?).

The establishment will don't progress, it will dies slowly.

Buying diodes was not the thing to do: Better concentrate on drawing
an integrated circuit with a full processon on it. You could have created a
start up to exploit it an call it in-tell or something as that :-)

My gues for the today Intel would be quantum teleportation, quantum analog 
computation and quantum digital computers. In short, the idea is that:
A molecule quantum state is teleported into an analog computer, here the
quantum state is analysed and a digital model is built. The digital quantum
computer computes then all the possible states, including all the molecule
past. When an "interesting state is found, it is copied in the analog computer
an then teleported to the "real" molecule who assume then the computed state.

There is no nanotech in all of that, neverthless  this system could "repair"
or best, "bring back" in time a quantum system such a molecule or a cell 

Anybody interested? I have a solution for long term memory for Quantum 
Digital Computer. Some patents on the subject could drain plenty of money.
