Marshall McLuhan, the Canadian professor of English who was also called "the oracle of the elctronic age" (by the likes of the NY Times) said that television had made the world into a "global village."

He passed away in 1980. If he was still with us, and could see how the Internet and portable digital devices have impacted the world, he'd likely say, "This is exactly what I was talking about."

The sign being held by someone in Egypt, supporting workers in Wisconsin, is a sign that Marshall McLuhan truly was a prophet of the electronic age.
