About

Cyberspace is a colloquial term used to describe a virtual or simulated reality defined by the use of the Internet, networking and digital communication. In the news and popular culture throughout the 1990s, “cyberspace” became widely used as a household metaphor to describe anything associated with the Internet and its cultures.

Origin

Etymology

The term “cyberspace” is derived from cybernetics, a study of regulatory systems, their structures, constraints and possibilities, including mechanical, physical, biological, cognitive, and social systems. The term “cybernetique” was coined by French physicist and mathematician André-Marie Ampère in his 1834 publication Essay on The Philosophy of Science to describe the science of civil government.
