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.

McLuhan is back, but for how long?

Marshall McLuhan is news once again.¬†Today is the second day of McLuhan week in Toronto.¬†And for at least this week all things McLuhan will seem fresh. Especially on Thursday, July 21,¬†which is McLuhan’s 100th birthday.¬†What would McLuhan have thought of the celebrations? Probably very little.¬† He had work to do.¬†

Here is a post I wrote on McLuhan and celebrity you may want to take a peek at again.

Cordially Me
