Marshall McLuhan to Blain to Eric Harris-Braun & Arthur Brock
University of S Illinois Robert Blain quoted Marshall McLuhan's,
Understanding Media: Extensions of Man (1964).
"McLuhan suggested that money was a form of communication like speech
and went on to ask: "Seeing money as a medium of communication
immediately raised the question, When money talks, what does it say?"
Blain goes on: "Quickly, I realized that money does not say what people
want. People must say what they want with a spoken or written statement,
or perhaps with a gesture."
Now the MetaCurrency guys Braun and Brock are using similar snippets
comparing money to language and communication.
