McLuhan at Vidfest 2008

24 Apr

If you are in Vancouver this month you should get to Vidfest.  The festival’s line up includes some great people including Wired’s Editor-in-Chief, Chris Anderson as well as John Perry Barlow, co-founder of the EFF.  I will also be there.  I have the priveledge of interviewing Marshall McLuhan’s son Eric.  Eric is one of the preeminent scholars of his father’s work.

Living in a digital world has created a new culture of the nomad, one of metaphysical hunters of information. The old hunter-gatherer used a spear and arrow, the new version uses a laptop and wifi – to much greater effect. Join this renowned scholar and son of Marshall McLuhan as he discusses digital media and it’s impact on today’s communication.
Dr. Eric McLuhan
(Interviewer) Michael Tippett, Founder and CMO, NowPublic

Hope to see you there.
