The Drone assembly job

The way it works is some people post jobs, and other people bid on them.

The drone job was a private job. You do a few jobs for someone, you build a relationship - so why not skip the middle man and do it off the books?

The first day, I opened a box and assembled a drone. The next day, another package arrived, I plugged them together, turned it on in an open area before the 3pm deadline.

I guess I expected it to take off, but I didn't expect it to go straight up like that. It was quite impressive. I saw it meet up with another one, and head off together.

It turns out the second package contained an explosive, and someone really wanted that AI researcher dead.

40 people were killed within 10 minutes in 15 different cities. They never caught the guy.

The police say the amount of messaging required was pretty impressive. Months of history building reputations. Sometimes dozens of messages were sent within a few seconds of each other. Must have been a really huge team.
