  19. 19. Individual as Medium Key Concepts from McLuhan: • at first new media will look like a predecessor (tv like radio, email like letters) but it eventually it morphs into something completely different. • when electronic media replace visual (print) culture with aural/oral culture, humankind will move from individualism and fragmentation to a collective identity, with a "tribal base." This new social organization is the global village.
  20. 20. In a culture like ours, long accustomed to splitting and dividing all things as a means of control, it is sometimes a bit of a shock to be reminded that in operational and practical fact, the medium is the message. This is merely to say that the personal and social consequences of any medium – that is, of any extension of ourselves – result from the new scale that is introduced into our affairs by each extension of ourselves, or by any new technology.
