We shape our tools and then our tools shape us

“We become what we behold. We shape our tools and then our tools shape us”   Father John Culkin, SJ, Professor of Communication at Fordham University in New York and friend of McLuhan. 

This quote was hard to understand for me in university, but while I see my kids growing up with extensive digital usage, I strongly believe that the reality behind this sentence is highly explosive for society.
