Can Kevin Kelly predict the Future?

According to Kevin Kelly, much of what will happen in the next thirty years is inevitable, driven by technological trends that are already in motion. He captures this in his new book, The Inevitable: Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future. These twelve trends overlap and are codependent on one another, and will completely revolutionize the way we buy, work, learn, and communicate with each other.

By understanding and embracing these forces, says Kelly, it will be easier for us to remain on top of the coming wave of changes and to arrange our day-to-day relationships with technology in ways that bring forth maximum benefits. Kevin Kelly is Senior Maverick at Wired Magazine. He co-founded Wired in 1993, and served as its Executive Editor until 1999.
