PROMPT: Distracting the Trigger Men ...


“The university is increasingly important as a place for ambush only … No college, business or city is run by human persons anymore. I have yet to meet someone who knows what they are doing let alone why … Abdication of the human motive is now plan. How to tackle the situation of zombie and sleepwalkers. You can’t argue, they agree and move on. There is no more disagreement.” McLuhan, Marshall. Letter to Ezra Pound. 30 July 1948.

In the spirit of disagreement, I'll play: So, what in your learned minds are contemporary aspects of media/technology/life/living/laughing that McLuhan totally missed out on? As things are meaningful through what they are not, as well as what they are.
P.S. I am Anonymous B.

...& the letter B.
Perhaps, bring it up on the next MoMday. It seems to be a good theme for an entire session.

I agree with Anonymous B ... How about a session on 'hoicking up the anti" ?
