Mit lecture on mcluhan november 4, 2010: alan kay. Media avoidance what is an interface? computer as meta-medium. All the divisions between humans and hardware is breaking down. You have to internalize or become the media, blend with it in order to use it because then you stop being confused by it. Like when facebook changes their interface, you hate it at first but then you get used to it and don"t care. After awhile you just blend in with the medium. User interface (thing with his kids and the weird solar thing?) The effects of the medium is what he"s interested in. Don"t get lost in the content, think about how it influences the way we live. He"s interested in how the whole world changes as a result of it. Really weird way to do it, really frustrating to a lot of academics. He has an approach of the idea of figure and ground.
