What Technology Wants
Explore the interconnected stage of technological development with an analogy to biological evolution in this book. The author argues that the "technium" exhibits a similar tendency towards self-organizing complexity. Discover the benefits of treating tools as servants of self and society rather than out-of-control masters. The former editor of Wired magazine offers an optimist outlook on the ramifications of technology in human welfare and achievement.

2021-03-14T20:10:52.000ZReading "What Technology Wants" by @kevin2kelly (its great) makes me realize how long its been since I read a good non-fiction book. Books have lost the non-ficiton crown forever, IMO. Great books will persist. But something other than a book is almost always better now. – source
