Hilaritas podcast releases Kevin Kelly segment


The folks at Hilaritas Press have released a bonus episode (above and probably on your favorite podcast app) with author and pundit Kevin Kelly of "Wired" magazine fame, here is the official show link. I have not had time to listen yet so I don't know the purported link to RAW, but I think Kelly's brand of techno optimism is a good fit with RAW's own philosophy, and I am a Kevin Kelly fan and look forward to the podcast.

Here is the official show blurb: "In this episode, Mike Gathers chats with Senior Maverick at Wired, author of the bestseller book, The Inevitable, Cool Tool maven, Recomendo chief, Asia-fan, and True Film buff, Kevin Kelly (@kevin2kelly) on his new book, Excellent Advice for Living, Wisdom I Wish I’d Known Earlier, artificial intelligence, and more in this special episode of the Hilaritas Podcast."

Much of the advice consists of short aphorisms previously posted for free at Kelly's website, and I liked his advice well enough to bookmark it. When I went back to the bookmark the other day, I found that the advice has been removed except for a free sample of five bits of advice,  Kelly says this about the book: "I gathered the three lists, weeded out the weak ones, polished up the best, and then I wrote an additional 150 more bits of advice, until I had 450 of them. I put them all into a small book you can slip into your pocket."

Here is Mark Fraunfelder's post about the book,  with Mark's favorite ten pieces of advice.
