The word “cyberculture” is used in a variety of
ways, often referring to certain cultural products and
practices born of computer and Internet technologies, but
also to specific subcultures that champion
 computer-related hobbies, art, and language. In the 1970s,
cyberculture was the exclusive domain of a handful of
technology experts devoted to exchanging and promoting
ideas related to the growing fields of computers and
electronics. But following the commercialization of the
 Internet and the World Wide Web in the mid-1990s,
cyberculture took on a new life. In fact, today the Internet
touches many parts of life in advanced industrial societies.
Cyberculture is heralded for breaking down borders
and barriers, not just between nations but also between
 groups and individuals separated by physical space or by
political and social conditions. As a result, some would
hold that the Internet fosters a more complex tapestry of
relations than ever existed in the physical world.
However, skeptics warned that the Internet wasn’t
 eliminating borders as much as shifting their definition and
location. Instead of physical borders separating one people
from another, these critics contend, the Internet establishes
a border between those who use it and those who do not or
cannot go online. This “digital divide” was of increasing
 concern to social activists and policy planners, and to
businesses as well, who see the divide as a stopgap to their
future marketing strategies. This rift grows as cyberculture
becomes a force driving social change, economic relations,
political policy, and cultural life. If cyberculture
increasingly sets the agenda in the dominant culture, those
on the “wrong” side of the digital divide will inevitably
find themselves more and more isolated and alienated from
the societies in which they live.
