    This provocative book introduces a brand-new view of technology. It suggests that technology as a whole is not a jumble of wires and metal but a living, evolving organism that has its own unconscious needs and tendencies. Kevin Kelly looks out through the eyes of this global technological system to discover "what it wants." He uses vivid examples from the past to trace technology's long course and then follows a dozen trajectories of technology into the near future to project where technology is headed.

    David Everling says: "Sprawling scope, an ambivalent thesis"
    "interesting"

    Story
    What did you love best about What Technology Wants?

    The novel ideas about what may be driving the evolution of humanity.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How Kelly's ideas have a root in evolutionary biology.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Boehmer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. At times it was difficult to tell if he is a robot or not. This is appropriate for the content.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The last chapter. If you listen to nothing else in this book. Get it from the library and read the last chapter.
