Shor, I’ll do it

I ran into this article by Scott Aaronson today and thought I would share it.  To wet your taste, here's the first sentence of the second paragraph:

Alright, so let’s say you want to break the RSA cryptosystem, in order to rob some banks, read your ex’s email, whatever. 
Overall, I found it to be a pretty good writeup for the layman.  It's a little esoteric when it comes to explaining the QFT, but still - he did a good job.
