Tapestry host Mary Hynes asks Kelly about his most recent list, and why even 20 years on from some flopped predictions, he stays optimistic.

Chapter 110: Kevin Kelly on quashing quandaries with curiosity and creativity

3 Books With Neil Pasricha

Kevin Kelly is a man of many titles. Krista Tippett calls him a ‘philosopher technologist’, Tim Ferriss calls him ‘the world’s most interesting man’, and Stephen J. Dubner says simply, “If I was the Queen, I would want Kevin Kelly on my Privy Council.” Kevin Kelly is the first person — ever! — to be hired online. When? 1983. For what job? A fascinating one! We’re going to talk about it. He dropped out of college after a year to spend ten years backpacking around Asia. (His photos have just been released in a wonderful paperweight-dwarfing book called Vanishing Asia.) In the same breath he might drop stories of spending time with the Amish just as easily as chatting with Google’s founders in the late 90s. His online home, kk.org, is a fountain of deeply insightful and wise blog posts, such as, 1000 True Fans and his annual bits of birthday advice (which are coming out as a book next year!) Kevin also edited The Whole Earth Catalog, founded The Hacker’s Conference, and is Co-chair of the Board of the Long Now Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to encouraging long term thinking and which is, right now, building a clock in a mountain that will tick for 10,000 years. See why titles don’t really work with Kevin? I mean, sure, he calls himself a ‘packager of ideas’ and the Internet may know him best as ‘Senior Maverick at Wired Magazine’ (which he cofounded in 1993.) But he’s also written a series of prophetic bestsellers including: What Technology Wants (2010) and The Inevitable (2016). That last book came out six years ago but it lays out the future of technology over the next thirty. Clear and clairvoyant, Kevin’s words helped me feel more positive about the omnipresent magnetic pull of technology we’re all breathing in today. I would recommend it especially if, like me, you’re occasionally prone to digging your heels in the dirt, throwing your smartphone out the window, and screaming “I don’t wanna!” Kevin Kelly is a kind, wise, and optimistic finger-pointer. And, unlike most mystics, fortune tellers, and futurists, he’s got a long track record of being right. We are very lucky to have Kevin Kelly join us on 3 Books. Let’s flip the page into Chapter 110 now… What You'll learn: What makes for a good podcast conversation? What are the different types of vacation? How might you plan a vacation to optimize learning? Why are books a long-term technology? What does technology want? How might AI change us? How do you define optimism? How is technology both the problem and the solution? How do we learn to think longer term? What are recursive loops and how do they help explain the world? Why should we strive to engage in infinite games for growth? Why is population a concern?

The Next Generation of Health Care with Kelly ETFs Founder Kevin Kelly

The 7investing Podcast

The disruptive potential of gene editing could have huge implications for health care. Suddenly, several chronic diseases -- which may have required patients to be treated for decades -- have a potential to be fundamentally cured at the genomic level. This is unlocking publicly-tradable investment opportunities. Companies are utilizing the power of CRISPR gene editing, base editing, and prime editing to directly modify patient DNA. Larger pharmaceutical companies are partnering with these smaller drug developers and are building commercial programs that could be worth billions of dollars. Genetic sequencing companies are reducing costs and unlocking broader market adoption, which is rewarding them with greater volumes and higher profits. These opportunities are what has led Kelly ETFs to launch its newest investment product, the CRISPR & Gene Editing Technology ETF (Nasdaq: XDNA). In this exclusive conversation with 7investing CEO Simon Erickson, Kelly ETFs founder Kevin Kelly describes why he brought the ETF to market and how it is less-correlated with other health care funds that are available. He describes his allocation approach and why he isn't afraid to take large stakes in smaller companies. The two also dig into several of the ETF's largest positions, including Beam Therapeutics (Nasdaq: BEAM), Intellia Therapeutics (Nasdaq: NTLA), and Illumina (Nasdaq: ILMN). Publicly-traded companies mentioned in this interview include Abbott Laboratories, Beam Therapeutics, CRISPR Therapeutics, Editas Medicine, Illumina, Intellia Therapeutics, Regeneron, and Thermo Fisher. 7investing's advisors or its guests may have positions in the companies mentioned.

Wired Co-founder Kevin Kelly's 50-Year Project


One of the most interesting people I've had on Brainfluence is Wired co-founder Kevin Kelly. He's a renowned futurist, a perpetual gadget guru, a serious photographer, and an even more serious traveler. His latest project doesn't fit our usual conversation topics, but, as expected, his insights are fascinating. Book link: https://amzn.to/33rqNzv Show notes link:  Kevin Kelly, co-founder of WIRED and renowned futurist, has toured Asia for over half a century. Not only has he witnessed its changing culturhttps://www.rogerdooley.com/kevin-kelly-vanishing/e and landscape, but he’s also captured his experience in 9000 photographs, later compiled into 1000 pages of his most recent book, Vanishing Asia. Kevin set off for Asia in 1972 with a film camera. With no remote idea about Asia or its culture, he started to document the traditions that eventually seemed “disappearing even from first sight”. He put together the results from his privileged journey (as he describes it) in his three-volume book, which speaks everything traditional about Turkey in the West to Japan in the East. Kevin’s current title at Wired is “Senior Maverick,” a designation I’m sure you will agree is appropriate.
