Main Question or Discussion Point

Who do you think will win the prize this year? What are your predictions? Do you think it's Higgs hands down? Reuters predicts that it'll be Bennett, Brassard and Wootters. I'm not so sure.

I wonder whether quantum teleportation would be worthy? I would believe Reuter's prediction should the topic win, but I'm not sure about the topic itself.

I agree, I would probably rank quantum cryptography/communication higher than just teleportation, because QKD is one of the few quantum technologies that have really been turned into something commercial lately (and that is in the spirit of the original Nobel statement). Big names to consider here would be Anton Zeilinger and Nicolas Gisin perhaps.

Too early for Higgs, no?

Well, probably, but then again, at 83, he isn't getting any younger..
