[The Inevitable: Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future] Read Ô Kevin Kelly


This is a fantastic read a reinforcement that there is a lot to look forwards to and that being alive will only continue to get better I found that this book fell short of expectations and didn t really Deliver Anything Besides Some Idle MusingsMaybe I anything besides some idle musingsMaybe I too much but I was hoping for some hard edged looks at current technologies that were emerging and threatening to disrupt how we live work and consumeInstead the ideas are a bit wishy washy He struggles to force his vague technological forces into a bizarre doing sharing becoming etc framework that suits some things but not others The author also seems to put a vaguely futuristic spin on current technologies and behaviours within the current paradigm without offering anything truly novelWhile I was hoping for a glimpse into the future really what I found was a very opinion based look at what s happening today This is coloured by pseudo anthropological language that masks a very superficial understanding and treatment of the technologies discussedThe book struggled to hold my attention until the end but I persevered Unfortunately the effort wasn t very rewarding This takes ou on a journey into the future at times getting philosophical technologically "Philosophical And Totally Believable Future "and totally believable future explained in simple ways Its an interesting read but nothing ground breaking The real problem is that its written entirely in the bubble of a silicon valley member of the tech elite So its INEVITABLE that we will have cheaper technology sensors fastyer communications data There is apparently no downside or no limit This takes zero consideration of environmental and economic factors Increasing ineuality resource constraints and climate change mean that the tech paradise the author suggests is inevitable may be inevitable for a tiny tiny percentage of the worlds populationAn interesting.

To be almost unrecognizable from today s perspectiveThe book is clear well organized and an entertaining read It rattles along at a decent pace and the overall tone is positiveI have some minor uibbles about the editing there are a few typos than I d likeI felt two things were missing thoughFirstly while digital advances have brought undoubted benefits Kelly doesn t spend enough time on the challenges Sure being able to collect lots of information on ourselves others and our environments is great but this also creates privacy challenges and creates new opportunities for those who would harm us Kelly doesn t look at these aspects in any detailThe other missed opportunity is that Kelly s outlook is very middle class "American nearly all the anecdotes pastiches and comparators are from the perspective "nearly all the anecdotes pastiches and comparators are from the perspective a relatively affluent relatively comfortable person living in a stable safe environment Digital technology arguably will affect people in developing countries much and I didn t see much from Kelly on this The author starts by talking about how wrong all future predictions were from the early internet as well as how difficult it is to predict So how can he predict life in 2046Who want to just accept that every building to be covered in personalised Ads This certainly isn t a desire future of any sane person This is not inevitable because anyone who sees ad screens everywhere will implode into madness or rageAlready cities are become chavified with 100s of screens in buildings and pubs This need stopping nowAds will pay Sanzoku Ou King of Bandits Vol 9 you to watch them Er no I ll rather crowdfund an ad repellent See an Ad broadcast their competitors instead before hacking the ad billboards to display beautiful screens of nature or amazing architectureHelp shapeour future Help those who work in video advertising to get a life Get a hobby Afterall ou
