dichotomy between 2 visions of cyberspace
datascape (william gibson’s neuromancer) / cybercity (neal steaphenson’s snowcrash)
the former is continous ( a cold abstraction as well) whereas the latter is divided into places metaphor of our real cities)
Neuromancer’s matrix (1984) -> continuous space
Snowcrah’s metaverse (1992) -> discrete space
I would say : “what’s next ?” : mixed/augmented space ?
