I'm currently venturing back into some McLuhan essays while doing some other reading. I fucked with it in college back when I was a media studies major; it's pretty much mandatory for any introductory courses along those lines. These are really important ideas. Sometimes I disagree with them. But I find it hard to argue with him, even within dialogues in my own brain. I think that's the mark of a good philosophical writer.

Leile Brittan Update: I got way better at arguing with McLuhan inside my brain since I wrote that in 2007. Marshall! Meet me at the coffee shop. We've got some chatting to do. All in good fun, I assure you.
