cyberspace - Computer Definition
The virtual space created by interconnected computers and computer networks on the Internet. Cyberspace is a conceptual electronic space unbounded by distance or other physical limitations. William Gibson coined the term in his novel Neuromancer (1982) to describe an advanced virtual reality network. See also Internet and virtual.
Comprised of hundreds of thousands or more of connected computers, servers, routers, switches, and fiber optic cables. It permits critical infrastructures to work effectively and serves as the “nervous system” of the global economy and societal health and wellness.
Coined by William Gibson in his 1984 novel "Neuromancer," it is a futuristic computer network that people use by plugging their minds into it! The term now refers to the Internet or to the online or digital world in general. Contrast with meatspace. See Internet, virtual reality and DOD cyberspace glossary.
cyberspace - Cultural Definition
The space in which computer transactions occur, particularly transactions between different computers. We say that images and text on the Internet exist in cyberspace, for example. The term is also often used in conjunction with virtual reality, designating the imaginary place where virtual objects exist. For example, if a computer produces a picture of a building that allows the architect to “walk” through and see what a design would look like, the building is said to exist in cyberspace.
