Digital Salon with Kevin Kelly: Vanishing Asia

Palladium Podcast

Kevin Kelly joins the salon to discuss his new book and photographic travelogue: Vanishing Asia. Covering decades of Kevin's travels through 35 different countries across the Asian continent, this three-volume project records the traditions and pasts that are vanishing in the face of Asian modernity. Other topics include the value of printed work, why futurists should care about history, and why Kevin doesn't regret the vanishing of the past too much. Kevin is co-founder of Wired magazine, where he continues to hold the title of Senior Maverick. He is also co-chair of the Long Now Foundation and a prolific writer, photographer, and traveler. Palladium Magazine previously interviewed Kevin about his philosophy of technology and related topics. Check out that discussion here.

Kevin Kelly on technology and software


Kevin Kelly is one of the leading and deepest thinkers on the technology of our time. A startling percentage of what has been meaningfully said about technology in the past quarter-century can be traced back to him, something we don’t say lightly.    Kevin Kelly co-founded Wired in 1993 and served as its executive editor for seven years. He has written a number of best-selling books including New Rules for the New Economy, Out of Control, The Inevitable, and What Technology Wants. In this conversation we focus on sketching out the nature of technology and software, the relationship between technology and change, the limitations of software, and Kevin’s 1998 gem, New Rules for the New Economy, which outlines principles to navigate a world transformed by software and the internet.

021 Natalie Cordone and Kevin Kelly Discuss “The Connected Performer” and the Critical Skills!

All About Skills!

Natalie Cordone and Kevin Kelly are professional performers having performed for over 20 years off Broadway, with major symphonies, and in television and film. In 2018 they were tired of witnessing universities churn out students – many of whom had incurred six-figure college debts for their four-year performance-based degrees. Seeing these young people with immense talent but struggling with the business of the performing arts motivated Natalie and Kevin to found “The Connected Performer” in Orlando, Florida. It is through this entity that they apply their own talent and experience as musical theater career coaches. Their goal is to help professional triple threat performers connect to their talent, their scripts, and the performing arts industry. And they are successful – they radiate enthusiasm, confidence and a true knowledge of the performing arts in education.
