Please excuse me!

emoticonMy blogging problems persist, so I’m trying to work around them. Publishing a post in the precise way I want is tedious and fiddly, for now. So, please forgive any lapses, e.g., slight formatting discrepancies in the previous post; I’ll remedy these, once my basic problem is solved.

Here, I suppose, we have a distinction between Marshall MacLuhan’s “medium and message”.

“In a culture like ours, long accustomed to splitting and dividing all things as a means of control, it is sometimes a bit of a shock to be reminded that, in operational and practical fact, the medium is the message. This is merely to say that the personal and social consequences of any medium – that is, of any extension of ourselves – result from the new scale that is introduced into our affairs by each extension of ourselves, or by any new technology.”
