Watch out McLuhan

I’ve always joked that my aim in academia is getting a walk-on part in a Woody Allan film, like McLuhan in Annie Hall. No luck on that yet, but Derek sent along this trailer for Truth in Numbers:

Yes that’s me at the beginning of the trailer, in pretty good company, even if I still wince at the sound of my own voice on tape. When I saw this today, I figured that if they were going to make me a μceleb, the least I could do was donate a little–and I do mean little–cash to making the film. That means I have now invested in two motion pictures! (I was also one of the early Swarm of Angels contributors.)
