New Tech Talk: What Technology Wants

February 22, 2011 Sean Beckett

Kevin Kelly, Founding Executive Editor of Wired Magazine and noted technologist, presents the ideas from latest book, “What Technology Wants.”

“It suggests that technology as a whole is not just a jumble of wires and metal but a living, evolving organism that has its own unconscious needs and tendencies.

…This new theory of technology offers three practical lessons: By listening to what technology wants we can better prepare ourselves and our children for the inevitable technologies to come. By adopting the principles of pro-action and engagement, we can steer technologies into their best roles. And by aligning ourselves with the long-term imperatives of this near-living system, we can capture its full gifts.”
