1990 In 1990, Derrick de Kerckhove invited Kim Veltman to join the McLuhan Program where he founded the Perspective Unit. This led to connections with a group of student programmers from 1992-1998. Their work led to a Demo of SUMS which was accepted as the only demo produced by students at the G7 Conference and Exhibitions (Brussels, 1995; Halifax, 1995 and Midrand, 1996). All evidence of these contributions has since been removed from the McLuhan Website.
