Cooling can be chemical, simple and without any "systems" therefore no added complexity. Just to add a statistic fraction to survival rate.
Background of the mirror could be actively cooled, comes handy as a thermal cloak too. As you said, with beryllium, you need to cool only a 2% of incoming energy.
Majority of worker slaves have such positive attitude "I have a good relationship with management" until burned out or not needed anymore. Well, they didn't even notice they and their work are owned. So, a little reality check: a hired man who builds a house does not get the ownership of the house. Or a car. Or an iPad. Making software for hire is no different. Your work should provide a profit for the one who invests in you. If you want the profit you think your work is worth of, quit the job and start your own business.
We can play the word games too. Instead of "encryption", let us start calling that kind of computing a "baroque data formatting" or something else. I am very confident coders can play much better than lawyers.
Instead of printing encrypted (and properly encoded) data on a sheet of paper, you could use a sheet of stainless steel and a laser cutter. Use a common scanner for reading.
How long it takes that MEMEX AI will actually start performing criminal acts on Dark Web to justify it's own existence?
Decision algorithms of sea mines were quite complex since the WW1 and WW2, with rules implemented on mechanical computers, clocks and magnetic detectors, such as "explode on third big ship from night convoy running north to south only, don't mind small ships and other directions".
will be CEO of a company forcing or tricking employees to make a fraudulent wire transfer which mimics a phishing scam.
I hope they have built some spaceships before 201 million years extinction event.
Weak, bad or fake encryption is infinitely much worse than none, because it makes people believe they are safe while they are not.
Probably a fembot or gynoid http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G... is necessary to do all the tasks correctly.
The Internet will detect any parental control as a damage and route around it.

'The researchers — Boston University's Seth Benzell, Laurence Kotlikoff, and Guillermo LaGarda, and Columbia University's Jeffrey Sachs — aren't predicting some silly, Terminator-like robot apocalypse. What they are saying is that our economy is entering a new type of boom-and-bust cycle that accelerates the production of new products and new code so rapidly that supply outstrips demand. The solution to that shortage will be to figure out how not to need those hard-to-find human experts. In fact, it's already happening in some areas.'
The most complicated part of the problem: a passing through Hell, could be a difficult strategy problem, more than an engineering one.
The style of answers itself is a message: they are already indoctrinated and under control.
