Digital McLuhan : a guide to the information millennium by Paul Levinson ( Book )
28 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 1,088 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Paul Levinson delves into the lessons McLuhan holds for the new millennium. This book highlights and explains the truly prophetic nature of McLuhan's theories. Levinson shows us why and how the "Wired" generation is now turning to McLuhan's work to better understand a global village in a digital age. We see how the Internet, in which every computer is a center for producing as well as obtaining information, is the true embodiment of McLuhan's vision of decentralization. Levinson explores the consequences of this revolution on everything from publishing to politics, where the "gatekeepers" of old are giving way to new modes of doing business."--BOOK JACKET

Cellphone : the story of the world's most mobile medium and how it has transformed everything! by Paul Levinson ( Book )
18 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and Chinese and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Although the Internet takes us everywhere in cyberspace, it usually requires us to be seated behind a desk. In contrast, the cellphone lets us walk through the world fully connected. Cellphone explores the history of mobility in media - from books to cameras to transistor radios to laptops - and examines the unique impact of a device that sits in a pocket or palm and lets us converse by voice or text." "Cellphone considers how this new dual edge of accessibility transforms restaurants, public transport, automobiles, romance, literacy, parent-child relationships, war, and indeed all walks of life, trivial and profound. Like an organic cell that moves, evolves, combines with other cells, and generates, the cellphone has become a complex sparkplug of human life."--Jacket
The plot to save Socrates by Paul Levinson ( Book )
3 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
(Publishers Description) Paul Levinson's astonishing new Sf novel is a surprise and a delight: In the year 2042, Sierra, a young graduate student in Classics is shown a new dialog of Socrates, recently discovered, in which a time traveler tries to argue that Socrates might escape death by travel to the future! Thomas, the elderly scholar who has shown her the document, disappears, and Sierra immediately begins to track down the provenance of the manuscript, with the help of her classical scholar boyfriend, Max. The trail leads her to a time machine in a gentlemen's club in London and in New York, and into the past--and to a time traveler from her future, posing as Heron of Alexandria in 150 AD. Complications, mysteries, travels, and time loops proliferate as Sierra tries to discern who is planning to save the greatest philosopher in human history, or to do so herself. And she finds that time travel raises more questions than it answers. Fascinating historical characters from Alcibiades (of the honeyed thighs) and William Henry Appleton, the great 19th century American publisher, to Socrates himself appear with surprises in every chapter, Paul Levinson has outdone himself in The Plot to Save Socrates

In our imaginations however, we soar way past the limits of current technology. With a lucid but reflective style that takes in everything from rob
