Google Doodle honors professor who predicted rise of Internet

The Canadian professor who foresaw the rise of the Internet in the 1960s is receiving a special tribute on Google.
The tech giant is using its logo to honor Marshall McLuhan, writer of the book Understanding Media and the man who predicted our Internet age. McLuhan would have turned 106 years old Friday.
As Google explains, McLuhan broke down human history by four eras: acoustic, literary, print and electronic. He also coined the term “global village,” where technology can bring everyone together and offer access to information.
The doodle uses each letter from the logo to break down McLuhan’s perspective, including homage to McLuhan’s multiple TV appearances to share his theories on communication and media.
McLuhan was certainly ahead of his time, although not sure he saw a world where cat GIFs dominated the web.
