Marshall McLuhan at 100 — "The medium is the message." "We shape our tools and thereafter our tools shape us." McLuhan is one of the most influential media thinkers of all time, yet he’s also one of the most misunderstood.
The other night, iTunes DJ threw up an old Terence McKenna talk about Marshall McLuhan, called RIDING THE RANGE WITH MARSHALL McLUHAN – hey, here’s an mp3 of that talk – and I found myself thinking about him for the first time in years.
