Guilio is on point with telesphers, especially becaue the tele part is
linked to telematics.  What you are envisioning is a type of n-order
cybernetics' sphere.  But since the sphere is not just a circular process,
it would be more of a "metasphere".

Subject: [ExI] Looking for a word

Hi all,

I'm trying to crystallize a concept, and I need a word to help to do it.

The online world is now full of APIs, which let code literate people talk to
online services (all the standard webby protocols, google's many apis,
amazons compute cloud ++, twitter APIs, facebook APIs, etc etc etc). There
are myriad ways of interacting with these things, from having code on your
own machines reach out to them, to hosting code "out there" in online

I'm conceptualizing this as a multidimensional space through which code
literate people can move, interact, create, in a very real sense in which we
partially can already live. What would you call this space? It's a bit like
a noosphere, but that term would be a bit trite and not do the concept
justice. And don't say cyberspace. Any ideas?
