Summary

A book written by Kevin Kelly presenting technology as a living, evolving organism, rather than a machine that we have total control over. Going back to the very roots of humanity, Kelly traces the use of tools and other technologies as a way to project where the future of technology is likely heading.

Kelly suggests if we can listen to technology and figure out what it wants, we can better prepare for its arrival and how we should handle the implications that will present themselves as new technology develops.
