Invention is the mother of necessities.

Money is the poor man’s credit card.

All advertising advertises advertising.

The future of the book is the blurb.

These quotes and many others are the words of Marshall McLuhan, a University of Toronto professor and philosopher who taught the world how to think about media.  In a 1969 interviw with W5 he compares living in a city to cave dwelling.  The interview took place on top of the Sutton Place Hotel in Toronto.  July 21, 2011 is the one hundredth anniversary of his birth.
