“… data of a saleable kind.”

A computer as a research and communication instrument could enhance retrieval, obsolesce mass library organization, retrieve the individual’s encyclopedic function and flip it into a private line to speedily tailored data of a saleable kind. (Marshall McLuhan, The Gutenberg Galaxy, 1962)

McLuhan, altijd goed voor een pakkend citaat – (of wat je er in leest ook is wat hij op het oog had?) Deze vond ik gisteren lezend in Coupland’s McLuhan-biografie.
