Okay, in about 5 years, I will be starting a company.

What will this company do?
We will design RF ciruits and/or solid state spintronic devices (eventually quantum computers).

What kind of people do I need?
1 Accountant/Patent Attorney/Business Entrepreneur, ~5 RF IC Design Engineers, ~5 RF System Engineers, ~5 Cleanroom Engineers, 2 Computer Weenies (networking nerds), 2 Electrical Technicians, 2 Applied Physicists

Where will this company be located?
Preferably Madison, Wisconsin... possibly Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Will we rule?
As long as I'm charge, yes.

Send applications to: e N t R o p Y @ p h y s i c s f o r u m s . c o m

Well, I was actually thinking of just leasing a building that came with janitorial service... that way, there's fewer people on the payroll.

Maybe when the company grows we can figure out how to employ you.

What is your specialty anyway?

I think I'm going to go with jb's idea and hire interns for the marketing campaign. Their young, they know what's hip... and I can pay them a measly $10 per hour, yet they'll be happy just to have the experience. Each year around Christmas time, I can give them a whopping $1 per hour raise and watch them wet their pants with excitement.

Might be cheaper to locate company in china/ india, as there are lots of tech people there willing to work for very low wages - more money for you.

If this idea works, I would not object to having 1% of the profits for this suggestion.

greedy you only get a share of profits if contribut directly to the company.

I can come be a weenie... of course I'm not a cheap weenie. in fact I'm a very costly (yet valuable) weenie.

And you'll need to relocate to California.. I've been to Wisconsin... no comparison..cheese and bars or beaches and babes;) Come out here and work on your tan

SHOW ME THE MONEY!!

That's of course if I'm not a doctor by then....*shrug* who knows..

..Do you need a philosopher/Molecular Biologist??

You know...for those hard questions...

"Is it right, to build Quantum computers? How do the quanta feel about being 'Used' in this way? Are the quanta alive?" and so on...

You know, its these sorts of questions which businesses have to ask themselves to make it into the big time...

If you'd settle for taking a position as a chemical engineer / wafer processing engineer, we could use you.

If you can get a motorcycle license and learn to play bass, that would be cool too.

Well, maybe... it depends on how big the company gets. Of course, photonics/telecommunications dudes usually can do RF systems engineering as well. Are you a hardware or systems dude, BTW?

If the company gets really big, then I might need a logician / game theorist / strategic analyst to help me rule the world.

No way, we are not moving to California. The cost of living is too fvcking high. Besides, I like the idea of having my company in the Midwest... I will make my homeland a little richer... and I can get certain small business tax breaks there that I can't get in CA.

i can bend both ways. My goal is to know as much as possible.
by the end of my studies i could fill about half of those positions - altho my speciality would be in photonics/telceomunications.

So meh..one day, if i feel like it, i may be alble to work for you.

which is why Phoenix is such a good choice. low cost of living, no snow, already a major tech city Motorola/intel/etc. Plus you can get some awesome tax breaks if you bully the government.
Where are you getting start up capital? is that why 5 years until start? saving up that McDonalds paycheck?

this thread appears to be a year old, the original poster also appears to be banned or de-regged. the likelyhood that he will ever see this thread again is minimal. so who wants to start some crazy business with me?
