Discovery: geek slang for "real world"

Word discovery: Meatspace (also meat space and meat-space)
The Blog Herald, Forbes does cover story hatchet job on blogging, Oct. 27, 2005.
Usage: Last paragraph, “Take a look around the blogosphere for yourself and you will find real humans - good, bad and ugly. What do you know? It’s just like in the meatspace (real world).” [color font mine]
Meaning: Physical world rather than the
virtual world or cyberspace.
Comments: Originates from
geek1b slang, which often is as imaginative as the virtual worlds they enjoy inhabiting.
