      Where did the term "meatspace" originate? I know it entered the OED in 2000 (alongside 'gaydar,' 'cybersquatting' and 'Frankenfood'), and I see The Word Spy credits a 1995 article about John Perry Barlow as the "earliest citation," but I think I saw it in cyberpunk sci-fi before that. Anyone got an earlier appearance than 1995?

      The HBO sci-fi blockbuster Westworld has been an inspiring look into what humanlike robots can do for us in the meatspace.
