“We’re at just the beginning of the beginning of the digital world for humanity, says Kevin Kelly. But some deep trends have already emerged that can reliably be conjured with and braced for. Kelly calls them inevitable.

Kevin Kelly is the author of Out of Control, New Rules for the New Economy, Cool Tools, What Technology Wants, and now, The Inevitable: Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future. He is one of the founding board members of The Long Now Foundation.…”
