Transcript

  • 1. My favorite Marshall McLuhan quotes Ripped, mixed and burned by Maarten Cannaerts Images from www.sxc.hu - Inspired by the book “Probes”
  • 2. [we have become] global wanderers information gatherers rather than food gatherers
  • 3. Societies have always been shaped more by the nature of the media by which humans communicate than by the content of the communication
  • 4. The tribalising power of the new media is little understood. Tribalism is the sense of the deep bond of family, the closed society as the norm of community.
  • 5. Today man has no physical body, he is translated into information
  • 6. The metropolis today is a classroom, the ads its teacher . The traditional classroom is an obsolete detention home , a feudal dungeon
  • 7. School is the advertising agency which makes you believe you need the society as it is
  • 8. The medium is the message
  • 9. I don't know who invented water, but I know it wasn't the fish
  • 10. The specialist is one who never makes small mistakes while moving toward the grand fallacy
  • 11. We look at the present through a rear-view mirror. We march backwards into the future
