pp.16–17   "The electric light is pure information. It is a medium without a message, as it were, unless it is used to spell out some verbal ad or name. This fact, characteristic of all media, means that the "content" of any medium is always another medium. The content of writing is speech, just as the written word is the content of print, and print is the content of the telegraph."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
p.17   "An abstract painting represents direct manifestations of creative thought processes as they might appear in computer designs."   Added by: Mark Grimshaw-Aagaard
