A tribute to and a lament for Marshall McLuhan continues. If he had lived Marshall would have been 100 on July 21, 2011. Join me in the countdown to his centennial, and an exploration of more of his observations on the way media work in the electric age in which we live.

Dear old global village.

Marshall McLuhan (1970, age 59).  The family hour.      

“The new age of electric software and information involves everybody in a single human family once more.”

 

Me (May, 2011, age 58).  Not to everyone’s amusement. 

Cordially, Marshall and Me
