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.
Speakers:
Dr. Eric McLuhan
(Interviewer) Michael Tippett, Founder and CMO, NowPublic

Hope to see you there.
