If you like this sort of thing (from the chapter "Ordained Becoming")
"I make the case in this chapter that the course of biological evolution is not a random drift in the cosmos, which is the claim of current text-book orthodoxy. Rather, evolution - and by extension, the technium - has an inherent direction, shaped by the nature of matter and energy."
Then you'll like this book.
If however you find this a bit overblown and begin to get bored by phrases such as
"The technium is the way the universe has engineered its own self-awareness"
"...we stand at the fulcrum of the future"
(both quotes from p 357)
then you won't.
Personally I found the book like being forced to listen to the ramblings of a pothead and just wished the author would go and raid the fridge to give me a break.
This is a pity, because Kevin Kelly's thesis is fascinating. Knowledge (what he portentously calls the technium) grows and as it grows it becomes more like life; self organising, self reproducing and co-operative.
This has profound teleological and social implications, which sadly don't really get thought through. Instead, we get a mess of anecdotes from evolutionary biology and sociology to support the idea of the existence of this "technium". There is also a book within the book, a discussion which quotes the unabomber so extensively that one suspects a case of copyright infringement. Lucky for us, and lucky for Kelly, the unabomber is serving 1,000 years in jail so probably can't sue.
You'd think it impossible to write a boring book on such a subject as the "technium". Kelly proves that on the contrary, it's easy. He credits his editor, a certain Paul Tough, with rescuing the book from verbosity. Maybe it was even worse before, so we should be grateful for small mercies. God, mercifully for Him, is absent until the last pages, where he is permitted a small walk-on part by the author.
