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.

The far-seeing Marshall McLuhan

Marshall McLuhan (1970, age 59).  Unbelievable?    

‚ÄúSurely, it is not unbelievable that decision-makers are totally out of touch with the world they live in?‚ÄĚ

Me (March, 2011, age 58).  Surely not.
