“As a globally interconnected society we´ve only barely begun to realize the social, historical and cultural implications of having access to the collective written knowledge of humanity, at any time or place of our choosing. Thanks to digital devices such as the cellphone, the tablet or the laptop the world is at our fingertips whenever we want it to be. Integration between our daily lives and this technology is still increasing exponentially. Because of that, it’s not unexpected to see more and more of aspects of the human experience move to the digital domain. In this respect, the vague but much-encompassing term of ‘cyber’ will have massive implications for our socio-cultural development.” – Don Eijndhoven
