Great talk!

Thanks very much! It was a fun talk-- one of those where you have a chance to really think through what you ought to say. And it was an excellent venue and audience. Marseille is GREAT.

I liked the McLuhanesque inference about technologies being an extension of our senses (and if I recall, he also says that they extend some senses at the expense of others.) In which case, are you suggesting that the purpose of contemplation/reflection is that we understand the ways in which we are being extended and the consequences it has for us?
