We’re at just the beginning of the beginning of the digital world for humanity, 
says Kevin Kelly.  But some deep trends have already emerged that can reliably 
be conjured with and braced for.  Kelly calls them inevitable.

The internet was inevitable, he says, but Wikipedia was not.  Smart phones were 
inevitable, the iPhone not.  The twelve deepest trends he lables: Becoming; 
Cognifying; Flowing; Screening; Accessing; Sharing; Filtering; Remixing; 
Interacting; Tracking; Questioning; and Beginning.

Kevin Kelly is the author of Out of Control, New Rules for the New Economy, 
Cool Tools, What Technology Wants, and now, The Inevitable: Understanding the 
12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future.  He is one of the founding 
board members of The Long Now Foundation.

[NOTE: Different venue this time!  We’re back in the renovated and great Herbst 
Theater on Van Ness, just a couple blocks from our usual SFJazz.]
