Summary
Paul Levinson delves into the lessons McLuhan holds for the new millennium. This book highlights and explains the truly prophetic nature of McLuhan's theories. Levinson shows us why and how the "Wired" generation is now turning to McLuhan's work to better understand a global village in a digital age. We see how the Internet, in which every computer is a center for producing as well as obtaining information, is the true embodiment of McLuhan's vision of decentralization. Levinson explores the consequences of this revolution on everything from publishing to politics, where the "gatekeepers" of old are giving way to new modes of doing business
