Correct Answer - Option 3 : William Gibson

The correct answer is William Gibson.

  • The term cyberspace was first used by the American-Canadian author William Gibson in 1982 in a story published in Omni magazine.
  • This term is again used in his book Neuromancer.
  • In this science-fiction novel, Gibson described cyberspace as the creation of a computer network in a world filled with artificially intelligent beings. 
  • Cyberspace as a term was taken to describe the “location” in which people interacted with each other while using the Internet.
  • This is the place in which online games occur, the land of chat rooms, and the home of instant messaging conversations.

  • Larry Page is the co-founder of Google.
  • Steve Jobs is the co-founder of Apple.
