I don’t know about you, but I definitely don’t have a crystal ball (none of us REALLY do). But if there was someone to predict the future of technology, I would bet Kevin Kelly has some amazing insights (spoiler alert: he does).

Kevin KellyKevin is the author of What Technology Wants (Amazon link) and is an incredible leader in the technology space (check out his bio right here) and one of the original Co-Founders of Wired Magazine where he was the Senior Maverick/Executive Editor until 1999. He is also the author of one of my personal favorite articles of all time, 1,000 True Fans (read it, enjoy it, tattoo it on yourself).

I was lucky enough to steal a bit of Kevin’s time to have a chat on RISE. In this interview, we discuss all kinds of topics ranging from geeky to marketing, and dive into big topics that you will find interesting – ranging from the future of technology to an inside look at 1,000 True Fans.

Enjoy! And as usual, feel free to hop in with your thoughts, takeaways, questions, etc, below.
