John Cage Quote That Applies Nicely to #noemailPaul, · Categories: #noemail
I can’t understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I’m frightened of the old ones.
Quoted in Richard Kostelanetz (1988) “Conversing with Cage”
As you may know, John Cage is famous in part for his pieces that used silence especially in his 4’33” — not playing or performing but listening to what you would have missed had you been listening only to a performance. He seems then the right person to join Marshall McLuhan as a guiding light for the #noemail project.
