What’s the Message?

A short writing assignment about Marshall McLuhan

In exactly 200 words, select a medium and analyze its message.

In other words, choose any “extension of ourselves” and analyze the “new scale” that it “introduces into our affairs.” What is the “change of scale or pace or pattern” that this “medium or technology” introduces into human affairs? How does the extension numb us? How does it extend us? What are the implications of it on a specific community?

Click “Write your response” below, and McLuhanize that medium.
