Where in the Tech Are We Going?

The Inevitable by Kevin KellyThe 2017 Read Harder Challenge at Book Riot has led me to a book that you might like: The Inevitable: Understanding the 12 Technological Forces that Will Shape our Future by Kevin Kelly. It's a glimpse into where we are and where we're going - and just how we'll be led by the things we've made. 

Our Future World

You jump in your automated car to pick up some prescription medicine tailored to your DNA. While you're waiting at the store, a space tourism brochure pops into your VR headset. Once the personalized medicine is ready, you ask your automated car to pull up the navigation route for a popular restaurant where the 3D printer at the table will create your appetizer before the main course arrives. Is this the year 2041? Maybe. Maybe not.

Predicting the future is a tricky endeavor. Even so, some authors have attempted the feat. Read about their thoughts in these books and see if you agree with their future forecasts.
