You can also go back to the year 1964 and McLuhan's "Understanding
Media":

   "In Othello, which, as much as King Lear, is concerned with the
   torment of people transformed by illusions, there are these lines
   that bespeak Shakespeare's intuition of the transforming powers of
   new media" [...]

   "Education is ideally civil defense against media fall-out. Yet
   Western man has had, so far, no education or equipment for meeting
   any of the new media on their own terms." [...] 

   "The vested interests of acquired knowledge and conventional wisdom
   have always been by-passed and engulfed by new media."
