Kevin Kelly: "What Technology Wants"

program: 
The Digital Divide
program date: 
Fri, 12/10/2010

Dave DeAngelis interviews Wired magazine co-founder Kevin Kelly about his new book “What Technology Wants.” Kelly argues that our whole world of manufactured technology—automobiles, electrical systems, factories, gadgets, and the Internet—is so complex and interdependent that it functions as a life-like system. And just as biological evolution has unconscious tendencies, so too does technology. By following these tendencies, we can get an idea of what technology wants and prepare ourselves for the inevitable technologies to come.

A Maintenance vs. Manufacturing Economy

program date: 
Mon, 11/22/2010

 Ken Ingham is a writer, and in the early '90s responded to NPR's MarketPlace Report challenge to suggest ways to kick-start the economy.

The commentary seeks to revive his suggestions and partially respond to the consumer-driven approach Ingham assumes.
