What Technology Wants
Kevin Kelly, Author, What Technology Wants; Senior Maverick, Wired Magazine
Most of us have a love/hate relationship with new inventions, such as the “crackberry,” for example. Kelly declares this conflict as inherent to all technology. But he also argues that technology is not anti-nature, but rather the “seventh kingdom” of life; it now shares with life certain biases, urges, needs and tendencies. By adopting the principles of pro-action and engagement, we can steer technologies into their best roles.
