Commented on “A VC” October 26, 2009Posted by David Gillespie in Uncategorized.
Thanks so much for your thoughts. The point on McLuhan is one I’ve been wrestling with for a while. I got a great comment from Rob Long on this. Rob works in Hollywood, and his perspective was that we’re slowly coming full circle back to being around the campfire. Now maybe that is more semantics than reality, but I do think given the ubiquity of media, we’re living in a very different world to the one McLuhan occupied. I’m not proposing moving beyond his thoughts for the sake of it (indeed I have a lot of his stuff still to work through), but I think it is an idea worth grappling with.
I’m going to be pondering your comment for the rest of the day… =]
