Kevin Kelly (Out of Control: New Rules for the New Economy) thinks that technology has a mind of its own. He doesn't mean that in the hackneyed sense of heavy-handed "robots gone wrong" sci-fi stories; instead in his carefully reasoned new book, he proposes that technology has become a near-living thing, an evolutionary life force that possesses its own trajectories and imperatives. The pervasive strength of those tendencies, he argues, make technology as great a force in the world today as nature itself. What Technology Wants is a visionary book, but it is grounded in specificity. In its pages, Kelly identifies the directions that technology is now leading us. Persuasive, cutting-edge arguments about an unavoidable subject.
