I think you made a mistake. You put

Malcolm McLaren would put it in 1993, “Gutenberg made everyone a reader, Xerox made everyone a publisher…”. Malcolm McLaren was the manager of the Sex Pistols, so may not be who you are trying to quote.

The time magazine article you reference (from 1976) quotes Marshall McLuhan as saying "Whereas Caxton and Gutenberg enabled all men to become readers, Xerox has enabled all men to become publishers."


strikes me as a fumble we see the chat bots making.
