Iapetus Orbital Fleet
Recently a microcorp named Eden Info Dynamics has managed to push through the red tape we put in place in regards to Iapetus. They have quite a bit of Kroner behind them and and widespread grassroots support. They even have some support among the re claimers in the inner system.
Their plan is to re instantiate all the egos Luna keeps in cold storage in a hyper realistic simulation as infomorphs, using Iapetus 'computronium' to allow for unlimited storage and processing capacity. There has obviously been some concern regarding TITAN influencing or somehow taking control of the colony. There is also some concern over what those egos will do once they are instantiated. We are talking about 300-500 million egos in dead storage, most of them with few or no useful skills.
I feel as a humanitarian effort, it is to be lauded, but I remain skeptic of using anything having to do with TITAN construction. As far as we are able to discern, the computronium is inert, though a few exsurgents remain. Several cubic meters of computronium have been cut from the crust and utilized in a remote server habitat with limited external mesh access. The plan is to instantiate 10,000 to 40,000 egos in the temporary server, keeping it under observation until it is determined to be safe for more macro scale projects such as the one Eden has proposed.
What concerns me is not the computronium itself, but the nanomesh interface they are using to connect their hardware to it. Eden has made a very aggressive push in social media and is under pressure to deliver, it may have used further TITAN technology to establish an uplink. There are rumors the interface was desigend by an asych engineer, which is enough to give pause on its own.
