“Subliminal and docile acceptance of media impact has made them prisons without walls for their human users.” --Marshall McLuhan, Understanding New Media.
Even as we stand in the midst of exciting new features, it behooves us not to forget the traditions that made us great. Traditions like randomly quoting whatever catches my eye as shiny, as if I'm some sort of academic magpie. Also, I now have approximately a million McLuhan quotations, so I've got a nice stockpile to burn through.
