global village

Quick Reference

A term popularized by McLuhan, long before the World Wide Web, for a world that has been phenomenally shrunk by communication technologies and transport systems so that news and information spreads rapidly across the planet and those with direct access to such technologies feel more interconnected, as if they were members of the same community. See also McLuhanism.
