On Feedback, Political and Poetic

Joshua C.

“The wired plant has no boundaries and no monopolies of knowledge”-Marshall McLuhan”

The reason why I picked this quote to analyze was that it intrigued me, I found it utterly amazing that somebody , before the invention of the World Wide Web was able to give a logical explanation to something that had never existed in his life time.
