The term cyberspace was coined in [Gibson, 1984]. The same author continued to describe his vision in [Gibson, 1986][Gibson, 1988][Gibson and Sterling, 1991][Gibson, 1994].The reference is certainly [Benedikt, 1991]. Interesting views on this subject are contained in [Saco, 1994][Åm, 1994][Pesce, 1994]. [Hamit, 1993] gives an introduction with several examples. An excellent introduction to MOO technology, the closest implementation of the concept of cyberspace, can be found in [Schneider et al., 1995].
