...but, I just starting reading him (and about him) this weekend.

Wicked.

I've read some of his stuff before, and the guy is full of great quotes.

I recently thumbed through a book of his where he annotated various ads and other print graphics, tagging them with McLuhanisms. It was kinda dated and not as interesting as I had hoped. The only reason I picked it up was because I had read somewhere that the book was an intellectual forefather of some of Lileks' stuff, which I enjoy.

I'm way too distractable.
