Panopticon
"The exomemory stores data -- all data -- that the Oubliette gathers, the environments, senses, thoughts, everything. The gevulot keeps track of who can access what in real time. It is not just one public/private key pair, it's a crazy nested hierarchy, a tree of nodes, where each branch can only be unlocked by the root node" (108)

The Great Common Task
an attempt to move beyond humanism,
to question what we think of as natual
“I am root, and the body us a world-tree, an Yggdrasil. There are diamond machines in its bones, proteomic tech in its cells. And the brain, a true Sobornost raion-scale brain able to run whole worlds. My own human psyche inside it is less than one page in a library of Babel. … I move through the dying ship, looking for the nanomissile, no longer a clumsy monkey” (27).
