      Hi Futurists,

      Let's start the new year with a bang. Kevin Kelly presenting his new book what
      Technology wants. More with links: http://futuresalon.org


      In April 2000 Wired Magazine published Bill Joy's article: Why the future
      doesn't need us, which lead me to found the Future Salon. This is why I am so
      excited that Kevin Kelly one of the founders of the magazine is going to join
      the conversation on Friday the 21st of January to talk about his latest book.

      WHAT TECHNOLOGY WANTS a provocative book in which Kevin Kelly presents a new
      vision of technology as a living, natural system with its own urges and desires.
      An innovative and optimistic guide to how technology can give our lives greater
      meaning, Kelly's book celebrates the immense power of technology as a positive
      force in the world. [more]

      About the author: Kevin Kelly is one of the true visionaries of our time. He was
      editor and publisher of Whole Earth Review, helped launch Wired magazine and was
      its editor for nearly six years, and has been involved in such cultural
      innovations as The Hacker's Conference, the early online community The Well, and
      the All Species Inventory. His last book, New Rules for the New Economy, sold
      over 100,000 copies in hardcover and paperback and hit the New York Times
      Business, Wall Street Journal, and Business Week bestseller lists. Kelly writes
      for publications including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The
      Economist, Time, Harpers, Science, GQ, and Esquire, and he is currently editor
      and publisher of the popular Cool Tools, True Films, and Street Use websites.

      We are very proud that we can offer the great majority of our Future Salons for
      free to the public. We were able to get Kevin Kelly to present by promising to
      buy 25 of his books. We will order them and have them for sale at the Future
      Salon. If you are interested in the book, please wait with your purchase until
      the Future Salon. Your purchase supports us and enables us to continue to offer
      the Future Salons for free to everyone. Kevin will sign the books after his
      talk.

      Our speakers tell me often that the Future Salon crowd asks the most interesting
      questions. I am especially looking forward to the conversation with Kevin
      Kelly. Not to be missed.

      Future Salons have the following structure: 6-7pm is networking with light
      refreshments proudly sponsored by SAP; 7-9+pm presentation and conversation.
