Screenplay idea: Man gets amnesia and reconstructs his life from blog comments he wrote. Short film -- he kills himself after 11 minutes.

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.
