In order to prepare a debate I got some information about Kevin Kelly, his life and his work.
Kevin Kelly was born in Pennsylvania in 1952. While he was working as photographer he founded his own newspaper, what worked as a base for his later works. During the las years he was written some books such as Out of Control: The New Biology of Machines, Social Systems, and the Economic World which is hi most famous book. His works ar about th Internet and new technologies. In his own words the Internet is one of the most advances of the technologies.
His video in YouTuBe about the prediction of the web, exactly of the next 5000 days of the web, has had a lot of views and has been used in some university research. The main consequence qe can take form it is that ina few years, maybe earlier tha we may think, we are going to be part of the web and the web part of us as well, as consequence of the huge development that the Net is suffering.
