Why We Should Be Optimistic About the Future
Many skeptics thought the internet would never reach mass adoption, but today it’s shaping global culture, is integral to our lives -- and it's just the beginning. In this conversation from our 2019 innovation summit, Kevin Kelly (Founding Executive Editor, WIRED magazine) and Marc Andreessen sit down to discuss the evolution of technology, key trends, and why they're the most optimistic people in the room.***The views expressed here are those of the individual AH Capital Management, L.L.C.

Ep. 173 - Kevin Kelly:  The One Skill Everyone Needs For The Future
I spoke to Kevin Kelly. He’s the founding editor of Wired magazine and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, “The Inevitable: Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future.” He’s a futurist. There are only a few people I trust with predictions about the future. He’s one of them. “Tracking is coming. AI is coming. Robots are coming,” he says on today’s podcast. The future is here. “We can mold it to make it work for us, but we're not going to be able to stop it, or be afraid of it, or be scared of it.” On today's podcast, he tells you what to expect. He reveals “the inevitable.” And what to do about it now. This episode is not just about what we “know” is coming in the future. It answers the one question we’ll never stop asking: “Then what?” It’s the question that makes us panic until we find the playground. Or the right woman. We look around, worried, unable to see the small joys. Two men sharing photos of their families. A woman leaning forward to hear her friend better. She’s not alone. The trees shake and I’m breathing. Then what? More life. We trip someone by accident, make a small joke, they don't laugh and then the stock market crashes. listen to my interview with Kevin Kelly to hear 5 ways to be on the right side of the future and: Kevin Kelly’s techniques to predicting the future - [4:39]  How to discover where there’s “a need” for innovation [16:16]  Kevin Kelly’s predictions for 100 years from now… and 1,000 years from now [26:08]  Learn how to create a business built around the latest innovations [47:00]  Find out the next biggest platform [52:50] “One of the most valuable things you could do today…” [1:02:43] Plus my latest advice for getting 7 streams of income  [1:05:05]
