What's the location in Charles Stross's works where it says we need a state only for non-repudiable identity, a shared basis for time, and "something I forgot"?
Is it somewhere in Glasshouse? I've read roughly up to chapter three. This could take a while.
I'd like to have a specific page in order to use the quote in my work, writing about data management.
Can fandom answer this? Am I better off to write to the publisher, or something?
