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

Johnny Mnemonic (1995) spoilers 

@nev
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.
