How big are the 'little black boxes' that Firewall's Operation KUDZU has gatecrashing teams bury? The description of 'nanohive, starting feedstock, and cache of egos and blueprints' implies at least a cubic foot for a general hive, but I'm still kind of fuzzy on how dense EP's data-storage tech is, such as the physical size of even one of the Portable Solarchives from Gatecrashing.
Or, put another way, if a PC wanted to create their own version of such a seed drop, how cheaply could they put one together? Are there enough open-source blueprints around to put together, say, some simplified Spare morphs to sleeve into, along with enough initial infrastructure to Von Neumann up enough advanced infrastructure to get off whatever rock the seed-drop had been planted in? Or would said PC have to start finagling @-rep contacts to acquire such blueprints from any existing brinkers who might be trying short-term versions of this approach, in order to to fill in the gaps?
Thank you for your time,
