Hey Communicators.

This week we looked at Cyberspace and Cyberpunk, what the difference between these two notions are and had to create a timeline for the history of something falling in the Cyberpunk category.

The definition of Cyberspace, according to the Oxford Online Dictionary: the notional environment in which communication over computer networks occurs. Some examples of cyberspace would be Email and Social Media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

A Cyberpunk defintion, from the same source: a genre of science fiction set in a lawless subculture of an oppressive society dominated by computer technology. Some examples of this would be films like Bladerunner, Alphaville and A Clockwork Orange

I decided to choose Television as the basis for my timeline, because it interests me the most.
