And what if we build our own fiber optics to connect the nodes together?

I wonder why I said we need self-rep, all we need is the ability to make 
the factories and then let them churn out the cpu nodes. Might take a 
while for them to make enough nodes, operating at peak efficiency, but 
at least we'd be on track.
