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.
Marshall McLuhan (1970, age 59).Â Roads not buildings.
â€śThe road is our major architectural form.â€ť
Me (May, 2011, age 58).Â Forming and reforming.
Roads, McLuhan is saying, not buildingsÂ drive our cities to be what they are.Â They form them.
Cordially, Marshall and Me
