Welcome to the machine
This discussion of McLuhan reminded me of this song. I'm am plugged into the internet no less than a Borg is plugged into the hive. Except I give the seeming appearance that I'm my own person, with my own ideas. While I can go along with Bryant that we nonetheless retain a withdrawn core that provides my individual autonomy, that is likely 0.1% of 'me.' The rest is part of the machine. Welcome.
