The CIA does venture capital?... who knew?!

So I'm reading my Globe and Mail this morning, and there's this fascinating story about a company in Vancouver called D-Wave Systems. They're working on something called "quantum computing." That's gonna allow scientists to tackle "massively complex problems that are now unsolvable."


Then I read this;

D-Wave has raised $174 million from Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Goldman Sachs, the US Central Intelligence Agency, and venture funds. 

That's right there on page B7 in today's Globe.

I had no idea the CIA was so into science!
