Marshall McLuhan was a post modern day prophet. Read his prediction of the internet from 1962, "The next medium, whatever it is it may be the extension of consciousness will include television as its content, not as its environment, and will transform television into an art form. A computer as a research and communication instrument could enhance retrieval, obsolesce mass library organization, retrieve the individual's encyclopedic function and flip into a private line to speedily tailored data of a saleable kind" (Marshall McLuhan 1962).
