Back then it was in the process of emerging from the days of ARPANET from the late 1970s, where it had previously been used as nothing more than a point-to-point data switching network.

Cyberspace now permeates almost every facet of our daily lives in some way, shape or form.

It has become our primary hub for entertainment be it through videos, music or gaming. These days we can now carry the web around in our pocket thanks to advances in mobile computing technologies. Now from the moment we wake till the moment we go to bed this indispensable tool has become a constant companion in our communications arsenal.
