Think technology is just a bunch of devices invented and controlled by humans? Think again, says author Kevin Kelly in his latest book, What Technology Wants. In it, the co-founder of Wired magazine and former publisher and editor of Whole Earth Review argues that technology is a living, breathing organism with its own needs and desires. He chronicles the history of this ecosystem, which he calls the Technium, and identifies patterns to predict its future development. Kelly recently talked about his observations, from robotics to chicken genes, with former frog Executive Creative Director David Merkoski.
