Kevin Kelly: What Technology Wants
Thursday, January 13, 2011 at 6:30 PM (PST)
San Francisco, CA
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.
Please note that this Tech Talk is on Thursday evening. Light appetizers will be provided.
