Time machine

Ok, so he sucked...But what is it with these space metaphors in the computer domain...? Anytime soon, we'll have to say goodbye to the notion of 'cyberspace'...will this also do away with our notion of 'outer space'...?

10 years ago, I believed it was possible to mediate the reality of outer space through cyberspace, but nowadays, I have come to understand the Internet as a medium way to strong to let it be used for something as 'mundane' as 'mediating outer space': outer space as a mental picture will just be swooped up by our comprehension of what it is to be inside 'the cloud'...I'll be sure to store my backup files on the dark side of the Moon, shielded away from the interference of Earth-originating radiation...
