      The internet doesn't really fit into McLuhan's "hot" and "cool" dichotomy. It encourages participation but it also sucks up our attention and dominates our senses. Nicholas Carr's new book.   McLuhan developed the terms ‘hot’ and ‘cool’ medium to describe these two realms: a hot medium is one that is data rich, a cool one being of low definition and data poor; hot media do most of the work for the audience, whereas cool media demand audience work and what McLuhan .

A movie is thus said by McLuhan to be “hot”, intensifying one single sense “high definition”, demanding a viewer’s attention, and a comic book to be “cool” and “low definition”, requiring much more conscious participation by the reader to extract value.

Hot media are ‘high definition’ because they are rich in sensory data. Cool media are ‘low definition’ because they provide less sensory data and consequently demand more participation or ‘completion. In the book "Digital Mcluhan" Paul Levinson gives an introduction to Marshall Mcluhan's key ideas and demonstrates how they are still relevant in this digital age.

One of the ideas he discusses, which I found interesting, is Macluhan's "Hot and Cool": Hot and cool. Media scholar Marshall McLuhan created two categories: hot vs.

cool media. Hot media is that which engages hot & cool book sense completely. It demands little interaction from the user because it 'spoon-feeds' the content. Typically the content of hot media is restricted to what the source offers at that specific time. My understanding has been along the lines of resolution - that is, how much work the 'audience' needs to do to fill in the gaps to create the fuller picture.

So Hot media is very high resolution - there isn't any space that the viewer needs to fil. Perhaps McLuhan’s best known and most commonly studied theory is that of “hot” and “cool” media.

In the context of this theory, the terms “hot” and “cool” refer to the degree of interaction between the user, reader, or interpreter of the medium (audience participation). Hence it’s possible, according to McLuhan, to understand societies based on what type of media predominates: hot medium = hot society, cool medium = cool society.

But, as McLuhan discusses the heating up and cooling down of societies, it seems to me that for McLuhan, hot and cool aren’t just categories, and societies are never just stably “hot” or “cool”. Hot media, on the other hand, activate 'one single sense' in 'high-definition'. 2 McLuhan defines speech, telephone and TV as 'cool', and the alphabet, book and film as 'hot'.

However, he says that some media, such as radio, might be 'hot' in a cool culture, but 'cool' in a hot culture. In Marshall McLuhan—who had generated controversy with his generation-defining books The Gutenberg Galaxy, The Mechanical Bride: Folklore of Industrial Man, The Medium is the Massage, Understanding Media, etc., on the impact media has on social relations and the roles of typography on mankind’s present and future—was interviewed by Playboy magazine.

Marshall McLuhan is probably best known for postulating that "the medium is the message," but his lesser known "hot" and "cool" media concept may prove even more prescient with the impending engagement economy that will be adopted by marketers and salespersons interested in making social media work in entirely new ways.

McLuhan used the key phrase “the medium is the message” in which he believed all messages are determined by the medium used. According to Whitman (), Mr. McLuhan used the terms ”hot” and ”cool.”. “Any hot medium allows of less participation than a cool one, as a lecture makes for less participation than a seminar, and a book for less than a dialogue.” – McLuhan – McLuhan Marshall McLuhan predicted the global village, one world interconnected by an electronic nervous system, making it part of our popular culture before it actually happened.

M. McLuhan’s “Hot” and “Cool” Media Distinction In McLuhan’s most popular book “Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man “, he claims that “the medium is the message” and explains that a medium affects the society in which it plays a role not by the content delivered over the medium, but by the characteristics of the medium itself.
