It is sometimes a bit of a shock to be reminded that <br /> the medium <br /> is <br /> the message<br />
Hello world <br />It was the machine, <br />not what we did with the machine, <br />that was its meaning or message<br />
The ‘message’ of any technology is the change of scale or pace or pattern that it introduces in human affairs.<br />
