OED Word of the Day: Cyberspace

Today’s Oxford English Dictionary word of the day is “cyberspace”:

The space of virtual reality; the notional environment within which electronic communication (esp. via the Internet) occurs.

The full entry is available online here. William Gibson coined the term, but it goes back two years earlier than Neuromancer (1984), the text many folks think about in reference to the term, to a story he published in Omni magazine.
