“A cyborg is a cybernetic organism, a hybrid of machine and organism, a creature of social reality as well as a creature of fiction” (Donna Haraway). Define your interpretation of cyborg using the Deborah Lupton and Donna Haraway articles from The Cybercultures Reader. Then compare the different constructions of the cyborg in at least two texts in this course.

A cyborg can be defined many different ways, using the texts we have read in the Cybercultures Reader, along with Snow Crash and using examples from films we have watched I will define the cyborg as a mixture of human and non human characteristics.  Using the films, The Matrix, The Stepford Wives, and Hackers I will develop a thesis that  embodies the true definition of a cyborg and how they fit into society.
