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.

Lions and tigers and bears?

Marshall McLuhan (1970, age 59).  Man the hunter!    

“The electronic information environment returns all men to the condition of the hunter.”

Me (March, 2011, age 58).  But what are you hunting?

Odds are your big game is not as exciting as the lions, tigers, and bears of our tribal ancestors:

 

 Cordially, Marshall and Me

Marshall McLuhan, Culture Is Our Business, 1970, p. 42.
