The Inevitable

Rating: 3.5/5

Kevin Kelly is technologist one of the founding editors of Wired magazine. InĀ The Inevitable, he writes about the 12 technological forces that are shaping our world. He doesn’t try to predict the future. Instead, he discusses technological trends that have gotten us to where we are now and why they’ll continue to push us over the next several decades. I’m not personally as hyped over some of the forces (Screening and VR for two examples), but I do think Kelly is a smart, futuristic thinker, which made the book interesting to listen to. Some trends (accessing and remixing) seem more positive than others.
