is technology an evolution hack?

leave a comment »

Here’s an interesting TED talk by Kevin Kelly on how technology evolves: link (the TED video embedding does not seem to work because the share – link to the talk gives a wrong TED ID)

I wonder…. whether the blind watchmaker (as in the book title) has been one-upped.With technology evolution we can bring in elements of both biological evolution and design. Interestingly there is no extinction since everything is recorded and can be resurrected. What may not be a good tech proposition today may become so tomorrow and can proliferate. Interesting idea…. biological life too may pass out of vogue, giving room for technological life….

Is technology the next evolutionary step for the process of evolution itself? Is resistance futile? :)
