The new work cannot be measured in productivity.
-Kevin Kelly, on the changing nature of work
Kevin Kelly believes that we overestimate the effects of technology in the moment, but vastly underestimate their effects in the long term. New technology, however transient or banal it may seem, increases our choices and sets the stage for new problems; it builds the world that we live in and react to. Whenever we create anything, we join a vast lineage of makers and thinkers and doers, from the first cave painter to the designers of virtual technology. In this interview, Kevin talks about applying the genius you have to the technology and possibilities of the present.
Kevin Kelly is a visionary idea man and technologist. He is a co-founder of Wired and also of the influential Hackers Conference. He is the editor and publisher of the website Cool Tools, which gets half a million unique visitors per month. He is a prolific author - in particular, his classic book Out of Control set our understanding of emergent technology - editor, and unorthodox thinker. His journalism has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, Time, Harpers, GQ, and Esquire.

Drive Traffic To Your Online Business
with Neil Patel
Double or triple your website's traffic
Traffic is like oxygen for online businesses: if you don’t have enough of it, your business will slowly suffocate. The best website in the world isn’t worth a whole lot if nobody knows it exists, and traffic isn’t just going to magically fall on your lap.
And while you can (and probably should) use paid ads to drive traffic to your site, good old fashioned SEO is a huge source of 100% FREE traffic just waiting for you to scoop it up.
This stuff can be a little intimidating, so we got the one and only Neil Patel to show us how it’s done— he’s considered one of the world’s leading SEO experts, and you’ll see why after watching this class. He breaks it ALL down for you, putting even advanced concepts into a super digestible, step-by-step format.
- How to pick the right SEO keywords (and how you can side-step the competition by focusing on hyper-targeted terms they’re not even aware of)
- Neil’s 9-step process for optimizing your site for search engines (it’s more than just your pages themselves — it’s the entire structure of your site from the ground up)
- Tricks for researching your competitors, including which keywords they’re ranking for and how much those keywords cost
- The blueprint for a content marketing strategy that takes advantage of Google’s heavily content-weighted algorithm
- 10 ways to speed up your site (and why a 1 second delay in your site’s loading speed can cost you millions
