Summary Annotation Cyberspace and cybertechnology have impacted on every aspect of our lives. Western society, culture, politics and economics are now all intricately bound with cyberspace. Living With Cyberspace brings together the leading cyber-theorists of North America, Britain and Australia to map the present and the future of cyberspace. Presenting a guidebook to our new world, both the theory and the practice, Living With Cyberspace covers subjects as diverse as androids, biotech, electronic commerce, the acceleration of everyday life, access to information, the alliance between the military and the entertainment industries, feminism, democratic practice and human consciousness itself. Together, the essays -- divided into separately introduced sections on society, culture, politics and economics -- present a systematic and state-of-the-art overview of technology and society in the 21st century.
