As he modestly says, the last twenty years have brought great advances in the clarity of some of the required elements here, plus agreement on what needs to be said and what can safely be left for a later run through the topic. He defines quantum gates, considers the speed of quantum algorithms, and describes the building of quantum computers. The basic unit of computation is the qubit, not the bit.
