First McLuhan thoughts…

In our grad. class, WEC, we are currently reading a book of lectures from a dude named Marshall McLuhan. He was a genius, sort of the fortune-teller of new media starting back from the 1950’s and onward. Reading this is totally applicable to someone looking for views that represented those involved with technology at the start of blossoming technology throes. This guy is puzzling. He was an insightful person who was ready to share his views with an unsuspecting (and unbelieving world).

I like how the book is chronologically prepared- you can kind of trace his thoughts and make some connections; at other times he can be a bit wordy and confusing…

Interesting quote to ponder:It is now the task of educators, McLuhan implores, to train “the young in mastery of the new global media”
