    She taps the Watch with a fingernail. ‘I see.’ ‘This is how it works. The exomemory stores data – all data – that the Oubliette gathers, the environment, senses, thoughts, everything. The gevulot keeps track of who can access what, in real time. It’s not just one public/private key pair, it’s a crazy nested hierarchy, a tree of nodes where each branch can only by unlocked by the root node. You meet someone and agree what you can share, what they can know about you, what you can remember afterwards.’ ‘Sounds complicated.’ ‘It is. The Martians have a dedicated organ for it.’...

  • Amazon shared from Nexus (Nexus Arc) by Ramez Naam
    is Nexus 5."   Nexus 5?   Nexus 3 was the most common Nexus formulation on the street. Nexus 4 had been a flash in the pan out of a lab in Santa Fe, put down quickly in a joint mission between the ERD and the DEA. Something called Nexus 5 was rumored to exist, but until this point had never been confirmed.
    Note: In his new sci-fi novel @ramez writes of Nexus 3, Nexus 4 & 5 - but not Nexus you're thinking :)

    Note: the long earth has been an excellent book
