            It's interesting to see how McLuhan, once marginalised in media studies as too much of a technological determinist, is coming back into vogue with the emergence of new media technologies like the internet.

            Whatever, McLuhan and others like him (Harold Innis perhaps?) would probably be major players in this kind of discussion were they around to hear it.
