define: Cyberspace

“Cyberspace is the `place` where a telephone conversation appears to occur. Not inside your actual phone, the plastic device on your desk. Not inside the other person’s phone, in some other city. _The_place_between_ the phones. The indefinate place _out_there_, where the two of you, human beings, actually meet and communicate.”

Bruce Sterling [The Hacker Crackdown]

Cyberspace refers to the mental environment, when people communicate in a mental environment through a computer terminal.”//PsyLex

Term originated by author William Gibson in his novel Neuromancer the word Cyberspace is currently used to describe the whole range of information resources available through computer networks.

. “A definition of cyberspace has not yet been found, neither it seems to be of a greatest importance for its progress. More important seems to be understanding its nature, its matter, so that some actions and operations can be put in place.”//Cicognani

  • Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation, by children being taught mathematical concepts… A graphic representation of data abstracted from banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the nonspace of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding, (69).//neuromancer

” Occasionally, the metaphoric location of the mind of a person in {hack mode}. Some hackers report experiencing strong eidetic imagery when in hack mode; interestingly, independent reports from multiple sources suggest that there are common features to the experience. In particular, the dominant colours of this subjective “cyberspace” are often grey and silver, and the imagery often involves constellations of marching dots, elaborate shifting patterns of lines and angles, or moire patterns. [{Jargon File}] (1999-02-01)”//learnthat

“In Cyberspace the laws of Newton and Einstein do not apply. The whole concept of space has a different meaning here.
“Although Cyberspace would not exist without physics, it is by no means bounded to the pure physical reality term” (Wertheim, 2000: 226)

“Because Cyberspace exists of a network of social relations itself, it contains all elements that are important for the beginning and keeping of a close community. This is a crucial point that deserves our attention.” (Wertheim, 2000: 297)

Cyberspace can be seen as a world on it self. Though one could argue if there really is a space, many people feel like they are travelling between locations and communicating directly with others. With the graphical possibilities that come with new technologies, Cyberspace could very well become a new world for the mind. The possibilities, like it’s ‘space’, seem endless. Unfortunately the events that happen in Cyberspace are not solely positive, it looks like Cyberspace just is an extension of the physical world, with the only difference that people use new ways to lie, cheat, steel, defend and attack each other for their personal benefit.”//Haker/de Lange/PDF/Cyberspace/The Creation of a New World

“”Cyberspace is a manmade domain,” said General Elder. “To take advantage
of the full area of cyberspace, you do not want to be bounded by
political or military seams. Part of this culture shift is to rethink of
ourselves as a global service that provides global effects across all
Cyberspace, as defined by the new command, encompasses everything that
operates on electronics or in the electromagnetic spectrum.”//infowar

“After evaluating this data, the task force concluded that cyberspace is a warfighting domain bounded by the electromagnetic spectrum. Kass says that it is inherently technological in nature and possesses unique attributes, advantages and limitations imposed by the physics of its environment. She adds that another way to view cyberspace is as the maneuver space of the electromagnetic spectrum.”//signal-magazine

“Cyberspace is a very real, physical domain that is comprised of electronics and networked systems that use electromagnetic energy. Cyberspace exists across the other domains of air, land, sea, and space and connects these physical domains with the cognitive processes that use the data that is stored, modified, or exchanged. Cyberspace is therefore distinct from the information that may be resident in or transferred through the domain.”//cyberspace defiened

“meatspace: /meet´spays/, n.
The physical world, where the meat lives — as opposed to cyberspace. Hackers are actually more willing to use this term than ‘cyberspace’, because it’s not speculative — we already have a running meatspace implementation (the universe).”//Jargon file

    Oookay! Das sind Infos in Hülle und Fülle, Thx. Kann man eigentlich Cybersapce auch für den deutschen Duden beantragen? Oder gibts ne Stelle, ein Amt wo sowas geht?

    Dann erfinden wir selber ne Erklärung dazu….!?

    Sterling ist ein Fuchs. Ob der auch so riecht?
