WIKIPEDIA “Wiener defined cybernetics in 1948 as ’the scientific study of control and communication in the animal and the machine.’ The word ’cybernetics’ comes from the Greek word κυβερνητική (kyverni ̱tikí ̱, ’government’), i.e. all that are pertinent to κυβερνώ (kyvernó̱), the latter meaning to ’steer,’ ’navigate’ or ’govern,’ hence κυβέρνησις (kyvérni ̱sis, ’government’) is the government while κυβερνήτης (kyverní ̱ti ̱s) is the governor or the captain.”

 CYBERSPACE & ITS INFLUENCE
  • 42. DEFINITION & INFLUENCES “Cyberspace” is a term created by William Gibson in his fantasy novel Neuromancer to describe the “world” of computers, and the society that gathers around them. Gibson’s fantasy of a world of connected computers has moved into a present reality in the form of the Internet. In cyberspace people are met electronically, without a face or body. As Gibson mentioned some of his influences were excerpts from Burroughs’ Naked Lunch, which first ”made no sense to him at all” or as he said ”like reading messages from Mars”.

  • 48. PAT CADIGAN (MINDPLAYERS) "One morning in 1979, I was getting ready for work and Gary Numan’s ’Cars’ came on the radio. Afterwards, the DJ said, ’There’s some cyberpunk for you.’ He was making a joke; in 1979, the punk movement was in full flower but the chaotic noise of punk music was starting to evolve into electronic noise."
  • 49. THE EARLY 80S The popularity of the film Bladerunner and William Gibson’s novel Neuromancer accelerated the term cyberpunk. Authors like Cadigan, Bruce Sterling and Rudy Rucker were only a few of the pioneers which created worlds where humans and computers merge.

  • 51. THE 1990S Back in the 80s the term cyber was more or less related to the underground. Though in the 1990s more and more people got internet access so that an utopian vision changed towards a “household consumer item“. This led to the creation of terms like ”cyber-bull”, ”cybercommunity”, ”cybergeek”, ”cyberlaw”, ”cyberstalker” as well as ”cybersex” and ”cyberwar”. Shortly… everything turned ”cyber” out of a sudden.
