This is a collection of my favorite Marshall McLuhan quotes. McLuhan was a visionary thinker who published a lot on 'the new media' in his age (= tv, radio, and later the computer). His insights are impressively transferable to our current web-revolutions.

    My favorite Marshall McLuhan quotes My favorite Marshall McLuhan quotes Presentation Transcript

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