“Cyberspace” is dead. We knew Thag smelled something. A few desperate attempts to coin a new term include:

  • augmented reality
  • ubiquitous computing
  • world brain
  • and some wanker has suggested: the world.

The best of the suggestions are “infosphere” but General Kang thinks “datasphere” rolls off the tongue much better.

Update: Upon reflection, “world brain” in English is quite lame, but in German, kind of cool in a Teutonic way: “Weltgehirn.”

We can imagine Dr. Tundra strutting around in black boots and a plastic shower cap, while he fiddles with his Blackberry, shouting at the top of his lungs: “Ich liebe das Weltgehirn!”
