A generation of people raised in the weird, unmapped terrain of hackers, smart drugs, virtual reality, cyberliterature and technoshamanism is propelling Western culture into a renaissance and, culturally, into an evolutionary leap. The postsmodern world of cyberpunk and hyperreality is here. The author takes the reader into the trenches of this hyperspace, into a labyrinth of concepts and illicit activities, of computer networks, raves, fractals, neopaganism and the re-emergence of psychedelic drugs, and captures the essence of a subculture.

A NEW WORLD IS BEING BORN.
In a breathtaking feat of journalism in the tradition of Tom Wolfe, Douglas Rushkoff takes us among today’s real-life cyberpunks, into a labryinth of concepts and illicit activities, of computer networks, raves, fractals, neopaganism and the re-emergence of psychedelic drugs, and captures the essence of a subculture that may be about to take over.
'CYBERIA' SURFS THIS NEW WORLD.
” You’re going to read this book and think it’s science fiction or maybe that Douglas Rushkoff’s got a fine imagination and a flexible regard for the truth. But I’ve slunk around this weird beat myself and it’s pretty much as he tells it. He got his paradigm well bent along the way. Read this book and put a kink in your own. You’re about to get dragged into a future where the benter you are, the better you’ll be”
JOHN BARLOW, 'Grateful Dead, and founder of the Electronic Frontiers Foundation.'
”A fascinating journey to the current boundary of human experience. Rushkoff has created an engaging travelogue to a whole new region of electronic interaction – one that can’t be comprehended using traditional notions of location, but only in the cyber language that this author has clearly mastered. I was seduced, charmed, amused and surprised by Rushkoff’s portraits of these pioneers of technology, consciousness and cultural transformation. These are the true stories about life on the very edge, told in a way that allows the reader to experience the moment-to-moment changing realities of the cyberdelic twenty-first century”
Dr TIMOTHY LEARY
”Ourageous … A provocative, wide-ranging survey of the current state of the interface between the longings of youth and the wild potentials of computer technology”
Douglas Rushkoff lectures around the world on the impact of technology on popular culture, writes for magazines including ‘Esquire’ and ‘Details’, and develops content for television and internet. He lives in New York City.
