McLuhan at Vidfest 2008
If you are in Vancouver this month you should get to Vidfest. The festival's line-up includes some great people including Wired's Editor-in-Chief, Chris Anderson as well as John Perry Barlow, co-founder of the EFF. I will also be there. I have the privilege of interviewing Marshall McLuhan's son Eric. Eric is one of the preeminent scholars of his father's work.
Living in a digital world has created a new culture of the nomad, one of metaphysical hunters of information. The old hunter-gatherer used a spear and arrow, the new version uses a laptop and wifi - to much greater effect. Join this renowned scholar and son of Marshall McLuhan as he discusses digital media and it’s impact on today’s communication.
