Sounds like a self-advertisement[edit]

It seems as if its written by Aaronson himself. A little cleaning up would be nice to make it sound more objective. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:06, 16 December 2013 (UTC) Note that it is against wikipedia rules to write an article about yourself. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:34, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Unsourced information[edit]

I moved the following unsourced data here. There needs to be a reliable secondary source that indicates the course "received widespread attention". The reddit post by itself is not a source that indicates this.

  • His "Quantum Computing Since Democritus"[1] course received widespread attention after being posted on reddit[2].

Why does "Complexity Zoo" redirect here?[edit] (talk)

See the "Work" section of the article. —David Eppstein (talk) 23:10, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
I don't think this redirect was intended by the people adding links to the "Complexity Zoo" from articles like R (complexity). Personally, I think the "Complexity Zoo" deserves a Wikipedia entry of it's own. — Hritcu (talk) 13:38, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
If you can write a new article that demonstrates convincingly that it passes WP:WEB, then go for it. If not, better to have a redirect than a deleted article. —David Eppstein (talk) 15:55, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
As the creator of the redirect, I confirm, these were exactly my thoughts. While it is notable and usable, there is basically nothing to write about the website in itself. Twri (talk) 21:28, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
