"The answer to the problem of information overload on the Net is reputations… engineer a system called a reputation server."
- Neal Stephenson

Stasis Field  
  Energy field which prevents time from passing inside the field walls; no time passes, nobody gets hurt.  

See the entry for Slaver Stasis Field.

The Tnuctipun-Slaver war had wiped out most of the intelligent species of the galaxy, a billion and a half years ago... Often the Slavers, losing a battle, had stored valuables in a stasis box and hidden it against the day they would again be of use.
From There is a Tide, by Larry Niven.
Published by Not known in 1968
