News & Opinion: Some Perspective from What Technology Wants

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:05 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

"The hydrogen atoms in a human body completely refresh every seven years. As we age we are really a river of cosmically old atoms. The carbons in our bodies were produced in the dust of a star.
The bulk of matter in our hands, skin, eyes, and hearts were
made near the beginning of time, billions of years ago.
We are much older than we look."

—Kevin Kelly, What Technology Wants

We're really looking forward to this book, being released tomorrow by Viking. We'll have a full-length review for you tomorrow when we release the Jack Covert Selects for October.
