Here's a blast form the past. Douglas Adams' 1990 tech documentary Hyperland, which also stars Tom Baker as a "software agent". Here's how The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy might describe it.

"Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-eight million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think hypertext is a pretty neat idea."
