Hi Scott, Enjoyed the article and I think it represents a restating of emphasis on the importance of the medium in this case the (social media) aspects of the internet that is enveloping our lives. Here's an interesting quote from a site that interprets Marshall McLuhan "the medium is the message state which states that -- a "message" is, "the change of scale or pace or pattern" that a new invention or innovation "introduces into human affairs." (McLuhan 8) Note that it is not the content or use of the innovation, but the change in inter-personal dynamics that the innovation brings with it. I think the social media effect is pushing the agenda as well as the accountability aspects of measuring everything on the internet in terms of ROI. http://individual.utoronto.ca/markfederman/article_mediumisthemessage.htm
