What place does technology have in the universe? And what does it mean in our own personal lives? This book offers the first integrated theory of technology, framing it as a near-living force that precedes us and will extend beyond us. Kelly presents a radical view of technology as a billion-year complex system greater than the sum of its gadgets, devices, and material goods. This web of technology continues a long term trend as it arcs into the future. The lesson for us is that technology's agenda is to increase possibilities and options. If we align ourselves with technology's historical trends we can better prepare ourselves to reap technology's future blessings, while minimizing its many problems. But only be embracing what technology wants can we make progress. This theory provides a framework for understanding the meaning of technology in our lives.
