McLuhan: “I may be wrong, but I’m never in doubt"
Master of aphorism and on occasion nonsense, Marshall McLuhan would have been one hundred years last Thursday. Alex Kusis from Gonzaga University has been maintaining a McLuhan Galaxy blog here as a repository of information about the many conferences, books, articles, blogs and links dedicated to him in this centenary year. Much ado on Twitter too at http://twitter.com/#!/FauxMcLuhan

- I am director of the Media and Persuasive Communication (MPC) network at Bangor University where I also lecture on political-economy of the media. I am currently working on a book provisionally titled Deconstructing Privacy for Peter Lang and leading two empirical projects in connection with privacy perception and the use of new media for smoking cessation. I am author of Creativity and Advertising: Affect, Events and Process (Routledge, 2013); The Mood of Information: A Critique of Behavioural Advertising (Continuum, 2011); and Digital Advertising (Palgrave-MacMillan, 2009).
