Kevin Kelly and The Inevitable.
Filed under: Recent Posts, Observ. Trends
Posted by: site admin @ 7:45 am

One of the books that was on my desk recently was
Kevin Kelly’s, The Inevitable that talks about trends
and expectations of the world we are surrounded by
and influence our moods, behaviors and thinking.

.
I was struck by his ideas that are based on how the Internet,
algorithms, wireless-instantaneous-sharing-free-copying
and unconscious human attitudes are influencing us.
.
KK also can lead us to interesting websites to expand
things further.  Not all of it is comforting to read and 
ponder.   In a sense it is open access networking and
mayhem where the last utterance or image dominates 
in an unfiltered and non-curated way.
He calls some rules out for blog readers yet the comments
offer:
‘whatever kind of renaissance you call it, is no different.
The destiny is ultimately dictated by the dominant forces
of political economy and not by the sophistication of
technology or networks themselves.’
