No Blog Post Due Tomorrow: McLuhan & Ong

Hi Folks,

We ran out of time before I could discuss the blog post in class that would have been due this week. We have such a small class and we were missing a couple of folks, so I’m going to give you guys a break this week. Make sure you do, however, get the reading done, ok?

If you missed class, these are the entries from the “Index of Chapter Glosses” at the back of The Gutenberg Galaxy. You need to have the official class text in order to have the corresponding pages.

For Tuesday: 20 entries

21, 26, 30, 36, 47, 56, 58, 79, 94, 117, 131, 146, 152, 154, 164, 177, 180, 183, 186, 189

For Thursday: 15 entries

208, 211, 214, 226, 227, 235, 237, 241, 242, 259, 263, 267, 273, 276, 286
