This article places Paul Virilio in the company of McLuhan, Foucault and Deleuze. After sketching out his intellectual personality, the article presents a few speed-induced media ecological and ethical problematics as Virilio sees them. It ends with two of Virilio's signature notions - antiform and divergence - with the addition of a few tetrads. Finally, it points to further explorations that need to be made to fully capture the significance of Virilio's work for the media ecology community, and for the good life.
