At the end of the exam, there was a question for extra credit. The question was: Who said, "The medium is the message"? Well, I could not for the life of me recall who had rambled off that particular, little expression. I had written the quote down, but not the author, Marshall McLuhan. I can't remember whether or not that I had felt that it wasn't important at the time to jot down a name. Or that perhaps at that particular moment the instructor was speaking faster than my note taking ability. Or even if I simply did not know how to even spell McLuhan, (Mc and Mac names can, at times, be bothersome). I do know I won't be getting that extra point. And I'll remember Mr. McLuhan from this point forward.
Anyway, school's out. Whoo hoo! Now the Christmas festivities can begin in earnest.
