McLuhan centennial site: non-quotable quips from an eminently quotable fellow


David Weinberger sez, "As a gift on the centenary of his birth, a site has gone up featuring brief clips of Marshall McLuhan explaining his key ideas and catch phrases. Some are still pretty obscure, but some are on the nose 30 years ahead of when the nose appeared. For example, check out his confident assertion that books will become personalized services."

Alas, there's no obvious way to embed this video, which seems like a huge oversight if the intention of the site is to invigorate debate about McLuhan's ideas -- creating a site that has no way to directly include and quote McLuhan's words in those discussions!
