Digital Philosophers

  • William Gibson is a science fiction writer and the author of Neuromancer, a 1984 book that predicted that internet technology and humans would eventually reach a point where Artificial Intelligence and the human mind would battle for control. The movies The Matrix and its sequels were loosely based off William Gibson's work.
  • Charles Moffat is an art historian and artist who in 2001 wrote "The Work of Art in the Age of Digital Reproduction" in which he theorizes that great works of art would no longer be seen in art galleries and that people will visit cyber-galleries to see artwork instead. Moffat also coined the term "Cyberspacology" in a separate work.
