A dream of the ultimate communication medium

"Like communities, all media are partly real and partly imagined. Without either actual or imaginary characteristics, media cannot function. More than mere 'extensions of man', media- especially communications media- are endowed with a nearly sacred capacity for qualitative transformation of human relationships. Many of the limitations of everyday life, especially the trappings of interpersonal communication, are to be alleviated by technological apparatuses that promise seamless and immediate connection. "
