    one of the last Scientific American issues described a way to make a QC. I wasn't sure if I understood correctly. Could someone correct me if I'm wrong:
    you start with pairs of anyon particles -input- and then swamp ones that are next to each other either CW or CCW. As they pass through time the worldlines of these particles traceout something like a braid. The shape of the briad can be calculated be looking at the WF of the anyons at the output. You get the WF by letting them annihalate and recording the extra energy.
    Is that right?
