The Promise And Future Of Technology With Kevin Kelly – This Week's Six Pixels Podcast

Posted by

Episode #526 of Six Pixels of Separation – The Mirum Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to.

I could not be more excited. When anyone uses the term “Futurist,” there is only one name that comes to mind: Kevin Kelly. If you have not read his latest book, The Inevitable – Understanding The 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our World, you are truly missing out on the opportunity to read and understand what new businesses are going to thrive (and which ones are going to die). Kevin is the Senior Maverick at Wired magazine. He co-founded the magazine in 1993, and served as its Executive Editor for its first seven years. He is also founding editor of the Cool Tools website, which has been reviewing tools daily since 2003. From 1984-1990 Kelly was publisher and editor of the Whole Earth Review, a journal of unorthodox technical news. He co-founded the ongoing Hackers’ Conference, and was involved with the launch of the WELL, a pioneering online service started in 1985. His books include the best-selling New Rules for the New Economy, Out of Control (a graphic novel about robots and angels), The Silver Cord (an oversize catalog of the best of Cool Tools), and a personal favorite, What Technology Wants (from 2010). He here is, pontificating about technology and the future. Enjoy the conversation…
