Dematerialised space vs spatially embodied computing

"The term public sphere is necessary to a discussion of embedded networks because it implies not only physical space but also the metaphorical space of public discourse, social norms, interaction, and social sentiment. I want to make a strong distinction between what has been called cyberspace from what I will call the cyburg. Cyberspace is defined as having no physicality, no matter, and no Cartesian duality because there is only the mind, and communication is the only transaction. ("Ours is a world that is both everywhere and nowhere, but it is not where bodies live.") If cyberspace is dematerialised space, the cyburg is spatially embodied computing, or an environment saturated with computing capability. It is the imminent stage of digital media that places computation in all things around us, from our own skin and bodies (biotechnology and nanotech medication), to our clothing, to our cars, our streets, our homes, and our wildernesses. The cyburg is the opposite of Christine Boyer's cybercity and may indeed functionally sidestep all the dystopian visions of disembodied, disengaged, socially remote cyberlife."
