New book by Kevin Kelly, on the intersection of culture and technology. A must read.

“More thriller than primer, this is the best technology book I have ever read.”
– Nicholas Negroponte, founder of the MIT Media Lab

“If you are interested the big picture of technology, you need to read this book.”
– Danny Hillis, designer of The 10,000-year Clock

“It isn’t often that a book is so important and well crafted that I feel compelled to urge everyone to buy it and read it even though I profoundly disagree with aspects of it. What Technology Wants is the best, purest statement of one way of thinking about our era and the future. You can’t understand the most important conversation of our times without reading this book.”
– Jaron Lanier, technologist, inventor

“Kevin Kelly’s new book is unputdownable. It’s brilliant. It’s necessary.”
– Doug Coupland, author of Generation X

“This is why it is still worth our time to read books. Kevin Kelly, the clearest-eyed visionary we have about the intersection of culture and technology, has created a tour de force, a book for the ages. It will be several months before I stop bringing this book up with everyone I meet.”
– Seth Godin, author of Linchpin

  1. Hmm, I might have to pick it up! Been thinking a lot about the potential of technology, and this book’s summary eerily reflects a conversation I just had the other day with someone about the consciousness of technology itself! Thanks for the heads-up :)
