Kevin Kelly, I think, may be the smartest person in the world…and I am only half-joking. I have been deeply interested in his work, and his thinking has influenced mine.
His 2010 book What Technology Wants changed my perspective on Information Technology in 2010; his book Cool Tools is a compendium of the best tools cultivated from his years of research. Among other resources I like is his blog post 1000 True Fans; his latest book just released this summer titled The Inevitable; and his podcast interviews on London Real, Tim Ferriss, Lewis Howes, and Chase Jarvis.
I asked him to come onto the show to get into topics that I had not heard him dive into from the perspective that I was curious about… I know you will be too.
