Cyberspace for Beginners
Cyberspace - a new word and a new world for the late twentieth century. A world of information accessible via computer technology. A world of cyber-surfing fantasy and 'virtual reality' meetings of minds on the superhighways of networked electronic information.
Through this internet we open up our private lives to anyone who simply chooses to step inside. The debate has begun - privacy and security or self regulation without censorship, big brother data base listening posts or a global social club? It is where our money lives and if allowed to flourish, it will become a medium in which any transaction may take place or intimate exchange encountered.
