I'd like to remind you this is literally the plot of Johnny Mnemonic (1995)

Johnny Mnemonic (1995) spoilers 

Yeah but it's far more exciting when you do it while fighting computer viruses inside VR with the help of a dolphin in a tank 🤪

@drwho good on you! i thought it should be on the internet archive but was in the middle of a lot of things and had no time

@nev I've also replicated the repo a couple of places.

@Alonealastalovedalongthe i assume getting the FDA OK should help, but that's why I also saved it and now it's also on the Internet Archive

@nev already cloned it to our git.

Can’t stop the signal.

@nev It shows my ignorance that I thought the Chinese posting the full virus sequence (way back) meant that the spike protein sequence and by extension the mRNA sequence to produce it was public knowledge. I would love pointers on which of my assumptions are wrong.

@clacke based on this analysis of the Pfizer vaccine (berthub.eu/articles/posts/reve) it seems there is more to the vaccine than just the spike protein, and also that the corresponding RNA can be "translated" in various ways, some more efficient than others

@nev Thanks! I hope there's a TWiV episode explaining this in even more depth.
