The electric light is pure information. It is a medium without a messageMore Marshall McLuhan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Our electrically-configured world has forced us to move from the habit of data classification to the mode of pattern recognition. We can no longer build serially, block-by-block, step-by-step, because instant communication insures that all factors of the environment and of experience co-exist in a state of active interplay.More Marshall McLuhan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
New media may at first appear as mere codes of transmission for older achievement and established patterns of thought. But nobody could make the mistake of supposing that phonetic writing merely made it possible for the Greeks to set down in visual order what they had though and known before writing. In the same way printing made literature possible. It did not merely encode literature.More Marshall McLuhan quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
