But modern usage, such as cyberspace, cybercafe, cyberattack, cyberterrorism, cybermosque, cybersex, cyberbullying, and such seem to use it synonymously with "Internet" Of course, you could argue that you use a cybercafe to interact with a primitive virtual governor, a cyberspace is a place where a lot of virtual governors "reside", while cyberattacks try to disrupt these governors.

But cyberbullying and "cybering" really don't fit into that scheme, unless you were to day that cyberbullying is "bullying by relaying domineering or intimidating messages with the help of a governor." but then again "physics" could be a governor.

Looking at the etymology at that point is at best useless, and at worst an etymological fallacy.If you don't like my invented example and think it is an exaggeration, try and find a hypernym for "door", "passageway", and "scandal", which are only some of the meanings happens to mean.
