Greek cyber sex chats
If you’re defending cyberspace, you must be doing something called cybersecurity.
Over time, “cybersecurity” somehow became “cyber security” and then just “cyber”.
The number of people seeking “love” through the internet is increasing.
The old traditional flirt has been replaced by chat rooms and social media, with the exchange of messages and photographs.
So how did this term “cybersecurity” get mindshare, when we already had a useful term for the same thing?
I’m not sure – give me your theories in the comments – but I wouldn’t be surprised if it reflects a military influence on government thinking.
Plato adapted this word to mean something like “governance”, on the basis that governing was like steering society.This new trend has been dubbed “cyber sex.” Recent results of a survey carried out by the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality, in which 1,600 people were polled (800 men and 800 women), has indicated that 8 out of 10 men and 7 out of 10 women are regularly visiting websites with sexual content.Surprisingly, 6 out of 10 of those polled freely admitted to using the internet to meet sexual partners, rather than developing a stable relationship.John Perry Barlow’s “Declaration of Independence of Cyberspace” famously declared that governments have no place in cyberspace.Barlow notwithstanding, government did show up in cyberspace, but it has never come close to the kind of cybernetic control Wiener envisioned.
