Content and Its Discontents

On today's I'm Just Sayin Show, the girls talk about the Content and Its Discontents essay from last weekend's NYT Mag. Under discussion is: the meaning of "original content," verbose McLuhanite theory, Don Draper on Twitter, advertising as content, and a debate about a Gossip Girl videogame.


If the "I'm Just Sayin Show" is the new way to deliver McLuhanite Theory (verbose? Really?), I'll take the old way, i.e. Heffernen's long-ish magazine essay. Which, it's funny, was just plopped onto the NYT website as if they didn't even read the damn thing.

I often wish that McLuhan was still alive. I think he would get a big kick out of the new "new media" we have today. I also wish that he could guide us through these difficult times.
