Kevin Kelly

“I think that we should embrace technology because it is an essential part of our journey in finding out who we are.”


He has been a participant of —and reporter on— the information technology revolution for more than 30 years. Based in his studio in Pacifica, California, he immerses himself in the long-term trends of technology, tools, and cultural behavior. He writes about the ripple effects and social consequences surrounding the culture of technology.

He is currently Senior Maverick at WIRED magazine, after helping launch the publication in 1993, and serving as its Executive Editor for its first seven years. During Kelly’s tenure as editor at Wired, the magazine won two National Magazine Awards (the industry’s equivalent of two Oscars).

Currently, he is the Editor and Publisher of the Cool Tools website, which gets 1 million visitors per month. From 1984-1990, Kelly was publisher and editor of the Whole Earth Review, a journal of unorthodox technical news. He co-founded the ongoing Hackers’ Conference and was involved in the launch of WELL, a pioneering online service that began in 1985.

He authored the best-selling book New Rules for the New Economy and the classic book on decentralized emergent systems, Out of Control, which was known as a “required reading for all executives” by Fortune magazine.

In addition, he writes for prominent publications including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, Time, Harpers, Science, GQ, and Esquire.

Earlier in life, instead of assisting college, Kelly was a photographer in remote parts of Asia; his photographs are gathered in the photo art book Asia Grace. His latest book, a New York Times bestseller called The Inevitable: Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future, talks about the deep trends in the next 20 years that will shape our lives.
