“The Earth shrunk by speed. New sense of the world. To be precise, one after the other, man gained sense of his home, of the district where he lived, of his region, and finally of his continent. Today he is aware of the hole word. He hardly needs to know what his ancestors did, but he has a constant need to know what his contemporaries are doing all over the world.”

Esse trecho do “Futurist Manifesto” foi escrito em um distante 1909, pelo italiano Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. Sim, 1909, um nove zero nove, primeira década do século 20. Agora você pode fechar a boca.

Tirei esse texto do fodástico e indispensável livro “The Economics of Attention: Style and Substance in the Age of Information“, de autoria do ESTUPENDO (esse cara merece caixa alta) Richard A. Lanham.  Eu já postei aqui um debate com o autor sobre o livro, vale a pena dar o play e se deliciar com sua visão. Aqui tem um link para uma entrevista e, para fechar, um aperitivo sobre quem é Richard Laham:

Richard A. Lanham (born 1936) is probably most widely known for his textbooks on revising prose to improve style and clarify thought. Lanham is a recognized expert in prose stylistics and Classical and Renaissance rhetoric.
