Dear all,

Its not new but its very good: 20 years before Gibson wrote Neuromancer,
Stanislaw Lem wrote in his 
book "Summa technologiae" about a concept he called "Phantomatik" which
today could be described as 
"Cyberspace". Lem wrote a couple of novels including "Der futurologische
Kongress", 1974; or "Transfer", 
1976; a selection of parts of his novels with the special topic virtuality
can be found in: "Die Endeckung der 
Virtualität", 1996. I am sure that some of his work (for example "Solaris")
was translated into english.
