Manifesting cyberspace:

What?
Well you'll probably say "Look there is no model for depicting cyberspace other than it looks futuristic and high-tech."

Ok so what do you think of my interpretation.

  • A computer is a house. Files and such are stuff inside the house. So networks are like cities. Connections are like hallways that link the houses that allow content viewing and sharing.
  • Firewalls are gates or doors that of course do what doors and gates do. Viruses are like a mold infestation. Tune-up software are like vacuum cleaners.
  • Hacking is like breaking and entering the house so that they may steal something.
  • D Do S attacks would be like everyone is rushing into your house.

That's pretty much using an extended metaphor. But it works nicely.
