“Information at electric speed blows out all the partitions between jobs, involves people in firms, in operations that are total and inclusive, so that… Big business has discovered that instead of a person occupying a little specialist slot in the business he it’s better to be worked with small teams that can take overall cognizance and consideration of the whole operation of the firm, and come up with all sorts of new solutions for factors that affect the entire operation firm, instead of just going ahead doing their little job in the old pattern. Same way with private lives; what had formerly been private life tends to become more and more corporate.”

— Marshall McLuhan
