|The Information environment
is both a physical place and a context.
|The physical place is
cyberspace. I define cyberspace as the
electronic realm in which global connectivity exists, and in which computer
networks function. For those of us who
are soldiers or airmen, its also where electronic warfare is waged. It is becoming increasingly dominant in
business, economics, politics, and warfare.
|The information environment
is also context, in HOW humans use and are affected by information. Does anyone not understand the question
“what’s the political environment?”
You cannot locate it physically, but it’s real! How do human beings use what I call the
“wetware”…we have hardware, software, and “wetware”…that’s the part between
our ears… how do we apply meaning to
