From the book:

Gaia In Turmoil: Climate Change, Biodepletion, and Earth Ethics In An Age Of Crisis

You simply can't make up the interconnected web that constitutes this cyberneticist world-schemer class.

Stewart Brand - the guy who gave you 'personal' computers, Wired Magazine, Whole Earth Catalog, et al - was Gaian before Gaia was cool
Cybernetics, Stewart Brand, Gaia Theory and Lovelock
Second-order cybernetics - cybernetics of cybernetics - as in System Of Systems (SOS) - as in slaves of slaves - as in slave masters of slave masters

How the 'cybernetics' of Gaia will put people inside a controlled dialectical eco-nomy

How videogames - a byproduct of cybernetics/game theory - have pushed the Gaia meme - the 'self-regulating' Earth - the cybernetic control system

Illusion of Gaia (1994)

Believe it or not, the Japanese are in love with everything having to do with Gaia. No big surprise, given the whole Shinto religion they had and still have going over there - the pantheistic nature worship religion where everything from a fox to a toad can constitute a God/Kami/spirit lord/whatever.

Other videogames from Japan with the 'Gaia meme':

Final Fantasy VII (1997)

Has lead characters in it - girls who sell flowers on the streets - who can hear the 'cries' emanating from the planet - the planet has wounds in it caused by environmental degradation and rapid industrialization/an evil monolithic corporation depriving the world of natural resources - the lead characters commit acts of 'eco-terrorism' on said corporation.

Oh, and then there's the movie (Final Fantasy - The Spirits Within (2001)), where they openly call the planet 'Gaia'.

Final Fantasy - The Spirits Within (2001)
'The Spirits Within' of the title is supposedly the 'carbon blob' living inside each and every member just crying to 'get out' and become 'sustainable'.

Sim Earth (1990)

Believe it or not, Will Wright worked directly with James Lovelock to push this one out there - for kids and adults alike to receive their 'cybernetic slave adaptation' programming course.
