It is the weak and confused who worship the pseudosimplicities of brutal directness. --Marshall McLuhan:

How have I not heard of this site before? Media folks, academics, and an interest in media ecology? Anyone who quotes McLuhan deserves regular reading :)

Ken--

Thanks for finding us.

IN THE DARK has only been around for six months and we're working on building a readership.

We're interested in opening up conversations that are--necessarily--closed by mass media.

And, yes, I'm a media ecologist (NYU '96--and a listserve member) and, yes, you'll find McLuhan quoted here from time to time. And Ellul. And Innis. And Goffman. And Eisenstein.

We hope you stop by frequently and if you find it interesting let others know about it.

Peace,
Peter
