Kevin Kelly's "The Inevitable" is not a simple book to read. His vast ideas and dense prose could make each chapter its own book. Each of these 12 forces that are discussed are "inevitable" not in exactly how they are going to play out, but in that they will in some way over the next thirty years. While some may view a future so completely dictated by technology as frightening or dystopian, Kelly's version is quite the opposite. Kelly predicts a broad technological future of sharing and collaboration and touches on exactly how these larger forces, as well as the smaller cogs that drive them, are going to affect our daily lives.
