Marshall McLuhan

January 8, 2012

Reading the interview with Edge website proprietor John Brockman in the Observer, I was struck by how influenced he was by Marshall McLuhan.

Did some research on McLuhan and he is described as a media guru, coining such expressions as “the global village” and “the medium is the message”.

Edge

January 8, 2012

Interesting piece about Edge website by John Naugton (whom I just found out was Irish…and yes it does matter 🙂 ) in today’s Observer .

Had a brief look at some of the articles and conversations, seems like an interesting concept combining expertise from technology and art.

My personal favourite so far is from Damien McElvana and it proposes developing an Irish games industry:Read Damien’s proposal here
