Fortune: Google Claims ‘Quantum Supremacy,’ Marking a Major Milestone in Computing.

Much has been said for a long time about the relative merits of and differences between quality and quantity. One school of thought holds it is not how much you produce but the ‘fit to purpose’ or quality of the output that trumps everything else. The other school holds that large amounts of nearly anything overwhelms subjectively measured attributes simply because enough of anything will ultimately include the best examples of that thing, as well as the non-best examples.

However what is becoming abundantly clear to many people, is that speed cures all ills. Go fast enough and quality and quantity are rendered meaningless as differentiators. Enough speed, for example, allows a party or a thing to just ‘re-do’ until it’s right. Quantity and quality become the same attribute at high enough speeds.
