  From  Webster's  Revised  Unabridged  Dictionary  (1913)  [web1913]: 
  Pornography  \Por*nog"ra*phy\,  n.  [Gr.  ?  a  harlot  +  -graphy.] 
  1.  Licentious  painting  or  literature;  especially,  the 
  painting  anciently  employed  to  decorate  the  walls  of  rooms 
  devoted  to  bacchanalian  orgies.

  From  The  Free  On-line  Dictionary  of  Computing  (13  Mar  01)  [foldoc]: 
    Still  or  moving  images,  usually  of  women,  in 
  varying  states  of  nudity,  posing  or  performing  erotic  acts 
  with  men,  women,  animals  or  other  props.  Some  say  it  degrades 
  women,  some  say  it  corrupts  young  boys  (who  down-load  it  from 
  {bulletin  board  systems}  or  exchange  it  on  {floppy  disks}). 
  Much  of  it  is  in  the  form  of  {GIF}  images,  or  increasingly 
  {JPEG}  images.  There  are  even  pornographic  games,  an  early 
  example  being  {Mac  Playmate}. 
  Beware  -  many  institutions,  particularly  universities,  have 
  strict  rules  against  their  computers  and  networks  being  used 
  to  transfer  or  store  such  things  and  you  might  get  corrupted.
