Summary
  • "Paul Levinson delves into the lessons McLuhan holds for the new millennium. This book highlights and explains the truly prophetic nature of McLuhan's theories. Levinson shows us why and how the "Wired" generation is now turning to McLuhan's work to better understand a global village in a digital age. We see how the Internet, in which every computer is a center for producing as well as obtaining information, is the true embodiment of McLuhan's vision of decentralization. Levinson explores the consequences of this revolution on everything from publishing to politics, where the "gatekeepers" of old are giving way to new modes of doing business."--Jacket
  • Marshall McLuhan died on the last day of 1980, on the doorstep of the personal computer revolution. Yet McLuhan's ideas anticipated a world of media in motion, and its impact on our lives on the dawn of the new millennium. Paul Levinson examines why McLuhan's theories about media are more important to us today than when they were first written, and why the Wired generation is now turning to McLuhan's work to understand the global village in the digital age
