Life of the Screen

The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel.

William Gibson, author of the award-winning novel “Neuromancer” (1984), described a reality that included virtual reality and and the Internet integrated into our daily lives. He is credited with having coined the term “cyberspace.” Just over a decade later Sherry Turkle, a professor of the sociology of science at MIT, wrote “Life on the Screen” where she discussed identity in the age of the Internet.
