Part I The Inspiring PartWhile I have mixed opinions of many of the ideas in The Inevitable, this particular paragraph stuck out as insightful and, for anyone interested in building products, potentially inspirational for some good ideas Three generations ago, many a tinkerer struck it rich by taking a tool and making an electric version Take a manual pump electrify it Find a hand wringer washer electrify it The entrepreneurs didn t need to generate the electricity they bought it from the grid a [...]

Speaking as a regular reader at KK s Technium, this book is ok It might blow my mom s mind, but many ideas are better developed on the blog, where the bits of geekery are not flattened out for the mythical average reader too much reads like jingoistic futurist rambling, using very assured future tense with wild projections ignoring the social context and environmental debt we ll have to pay and too much feels like padding Take this paragraph please, I don t need it order to run in real time, our [...]

This book both freaked me out and intrigued me because it showcased a future that blew my mind unlike any other book has before Kevin Kelly presents a view of the future that is overly optimistic despite my secret fear that robots will take all of our jobs and that every move will be tracked by a government agency that wants to control us Kelly says that we shouldn t fight against the future, rather we should embrace Yes, there will be tracking There will be upgrades of the stuff we already ha [...]

Depois de ler o What Technology Wants, qualquer coisa que o Kevin Kelly escrever, leitura obrigat ria para mim Bastante coisa bvia entre as tend ncias inevit veis, justamente porque s o inevit veis, mas os desdobramentos futuros que ele d s o muito bons N o mexeu com minha cabe a como o livro anterior mexeu, mas talvez porque eu j esteja mais interado, mas muito bom de qualquer forma As no es de conex es, relacionamentos pessoais facilitados pela tecnologia e principalmente de uso ub quo de inte [...]

Kevin Kelly, who is a Wired co founder, lays out technological trends that are inevitable Like too many nonfiction books, I found a few chapters to be worth reading, and a few not to be I enjoyed the sections on AI and books And sometimes just zooming out to get bigger perspective is engaging, which was the case for me in the sections on VR AR and tracking Much of the rest of the book seemed geared for people less technically savvy, which was my only complaint as it really drew the book out.Ther [...]

Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcenter I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP it is not being reprinted illegally It was a fascinating experience to read Kevin Kelly s The Inevitable right after tackling Nicholas Carr s Utopia is Creepy, an experience that teaches a lot about why so many other tech writers come and go with the same blazingly fast trendiness of teenage pop singers, while Kelly has been around since literally the [...]


Anders Brabaek

This is not a good bookSummary Kelly introduces the technological forces he believes will shape the future These are AI artificial intelligence, machine learning, IoT, robotics, the scalable cloud, virtual and augmented reality, omnipresent screens, quantified self technologies, and social media Rather than using the headers I have used above, Kelly is taking outset in what impact these technologies will have For the non techie, that might provide a look into certain possibilities in the near fu [...]

Okay, I ve been following Kelly for decades, since the Whole Earth Review and his tenure at Wired So maybe his optimism has worn thin by now Or maybe its because I m older But color me skeptical about gee whiz technology After seeing some high profile algorithmic flops like the 2008 crash, driven by computer investment portfolio algorithms Or Facebook showing fake news because people hit like a lot, despite knowing that its fake Or how smart policing using computer algorithms, designe to stop vi [...]


Craig Jaquish

I m growing increasingly skeptical about the utility of William Gibson s frequently quoted observation quoted again in The Inevitable itself that the future is already here it s just not evenly distributed Distribution speed is technological too The leveling nature of the very technologies we re discussing means that it s increasingly difficult for anyone to gain a better vantage than anyone else A apt observation of Gibson s made also by other commentators is that science fiction is less about [...]

About halfway through the book I was bored Not because the issues that Kelly discusses are unimportant to me, but because he delivers it in the one note cadence implied by his title The Inevitable The only true inevitable was that I would finish the book so as to be prepared for the discussion with my fellows at the book club, not because I felt that he had a particularly relevant work, and 300 pages later, I still feel the way I do Kelly falls far short.I believe that we as humans are imperfect [...]

This book is so insightful that I wish this book was compulsory for people pursuing technology computer science degrees The book Inevitable is divided into sections and each section is a gerund or force that is shaping us as a result of the technological advances I want to point out how he is not only talking about technology but also the philosophy behind and how the gradual change is realized through current examples and glimpses of potential future adaptations Regarding technology, I realized [...]

I really enjoyed Kevin Kelly s predictions for the future in this book He has that kind of over the top, goofy way to point things out you can just tell he loves telling how he thinks things will be I have a nephew that gets that excited talking about drifting, and he comes across about the same as Kelly The best part of this book is when Kelly decides the way to express his idea of the future is to tell a story He does this a few times throughout the book would have been better , and tells foc [...]

Audible I love this book Whether or not KK s predictions about the future are on point, the content and story telling of this book stretched my mind I ve never read a book by a futurist before so this book was a real treat for me, as it also applies to the work I do as a product manager The book left me feeling in awe about what the future holds it also left me feeling a bit uneasy, as I scrambled to internalize this vision of the future It even stressed me out a bit, with the notions that chang [...]

Ich habe mich oft ge rgert und oft gefreut Die Grundidee ist berzeugend, in den Details war es mir zu religi s schw rmerisch Die Zukunftsvisionen So wird mein Tag in zwanzig Jahren aussehen fand ich naiv, privilegienblind und berwiegend peinlich, bin aber froh, dass er sich getraut hat, sie aufzuschreiben, damit wir in zwanzig Jahren vergleichen k nnen Am interessantesten fand ich die Stellen, wo er dar ber berichtet, wie sich sein eigenes Arbeitsleben in den letzten drei ig Jahren ver ndert hat [...]

Yes What does the future look like It looks amazing than I could have imagined Kevin Kelly outlines what AR augmented reality and VR virtual reality will look like in the next 30 years He wrote this book before Pokemon Go came out I have been obsessed with catching all the Pokemon and evolving the ones I have Just having played this one AR game, I can see how AR and VR games will take over the world So fun Kelly also looked at the impact of VR in the home When talking about jobs and economics, [...]

INTERESTING AND INSIGHTFUL INFORMATIVE AND DELIGHTFUL We are moving away from the world of fixed nouns and toward a world of fluid verbs p 11 In the intangible digital realm, nothing is static or fixed Everything is becoming p 12 Although parts left me puzzling what the heck was what I just read all about , Kevin Kelly s deeply insightful book, THE INEVITABLE Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future, is a futurist s delight Kelly offers cogent and reasonable glimpses [...]

39th book for 2016 Wow The Silicon Valley tech heads live in a happy happy future world a world where we are all connected, all the time, in vast Hive Mind where all our most private thoughts are given up to the corporate cloud where our most basic consumptive desires are anticipated by ubiquitous AIs In Kelly s take on things, there is no point questioning the future No point in dwelling on critical questions of autonomy or ecological stewardship, as our fluid, connected, constantly distracted [...]

Loved it This is one of the best books I ve read about technology and it s future.

Out of our Minds Most fascinating, disturbing, and awe inspiring of the Inevitable forces Kevin Kelly highlights is the rapid rise of artificial intelligence AI and virtual reality VR Our future will part from all past as it will no longer be crafted only with our own hands, tools, and the machines that we once controlled with explicit instruction sets Increasingly the machines are teaching themselves from vast data collection creating self learning intelligences We already use this AI to help u [...]

Automation is not a race against the machine, but with it You can no longer choose to update your software, or choose not to, since software has become like an organism that is in constant flux And the internet with its billions of minds connected to it is a kind of super organism in a dream like state.Those were some of the strongest, most brilliant ideas I found in the book And among the weakest When Kelly sketches the unfolding of a typical day in the future, driving past buildings which are [...]


Lucas Carlson

The most important book of 2016Culturally we used to be much excited about the future We watched the Jetsons and Back to the Future with giddy anticipation But somewhere along the way, we started getting scared The predominant emotion towards the long term future now is fear Dystopia How bad things will get There are very few thinkers giving us a realistic and balanced glance into the future This book does just that Without the lingering taste of fear and dystopia And without a giddy utopia Ju [...]

Book was interesting but could have been a lot succinct This was a buddy read with BP and it was a bad sign that we barely spent any time discussing it I fully recognize the irony of reading this book in a print format which meant I had to type up the notes below How we will change how we relate to the internet The web will and resemble a presence that you relate to rather than a place the famous cyberspace of the 1980s that you journey to It will be a low level constant presence like electri [...]

The Inevitable Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our FutureKevin KellyThe author has been keeping track of technology developments for decades, and helping us understand just what changes are going on around us In this book, he distills those changes into 12 forces that he thinks will change our world and us He might be right Most of his forecasts are reasonable projections of current trends His ideas are thought provoking and worthy of attention we can help shape the fut [...]

A very enlightening book into the future of human life with respect to the current and upcoming technological advancements.

I don t know how I found this book but it was exciting to read I think my brother would enjoy it Even if Kevin Kelly is dead wrong on his predictions which is highly unlikely , you can t help but imagine what it d be like if he was right I wonder what he thinks of dumb solar roadways I was surprised not to hear anything about that in this book But note to self reread this book in 2050 to see if and how much he was right Basically think of Ironman s world and that s a glimpse of what we d have in [...]
