Kevin Kelly's WHAT TECHNOLOGY WANTS: how technology changes us and vice-versa - Boing Boing

Excerpt from a Cory Doctorow review; see the link below for more details

Kelly's central thesis is this: technology has its own internal logics and rhythms that are distinct from (and sometimes adverse to) the desires of the humans that create it. Technology creates itself, using humans to do its bidding, and our normal view of inventors creating technology is a kind of romantic fairy tale that ignores the fact that nearly every great invention is invented nearly simultaneously by many people at the same time, all over the world.
