WEBORIZE: To place information on the
WETWARE: Similar to hardware, but denotes
a biological system, most commonly the human nervous system (see also
dryware). [According to the Hacker's
Dictionary its origin is probably the novels by Rudy Rucker].
A postulated topological structure in general relativity, where a space-time
"tunnel" links two distant points with a shortcut. Whether
they can be physically realized is not known, and they seem to require
exotic matter to be stable. If they can exist, and can be built, they
could provide a possible way to travel faster than light (in a global
sense, since locally the travellers would move slower than light). For
more information, see Traversable
Wormholes by Michael Clive Price.
