A tribute to and a lament for Marshall McLuhan.Â Five days a week, Tuesday through Saturday,Â I present one of McLuhanâ€™s observations and talk about its relevance today.Â 300 ideas. 300 days.Â 300 posts.
Marshall McLuhan (August 2010, age 99).Â Is this funny?
Again?Â More joke titles for new chapters for Understanding Media?Â Now youâ€™ve gone too far.
Me (September, 2010, age 58).Â You tell me.
Here are even more tongue-in-cheek suggestions for new chapters for Understanding Media:
Coronation Street:Â Earâ€™s to the Medium
Girdle:Â Itâ€™s a Cinch
White Out:Â A Step Backwards?
The Foreman Grill:Â Reversal of a Hot Medium
Telemarketing: Dollars and Sense
Financial Fraud:Â Give and Take?
Robin Hood: The Medieval Poor Manâ€™s Credit Card
Megaphone:Â Old Yeller
White Wall Tires:Â Extensions of Spats
Flatulence:Â Wind at Your Back
Cordially, Marshall and Me
