A rowdy Saturday night in Philadelphia

Sirens are howling. Philadelphia’s feelin’ rowdy tonight. I call my dorm at UPenn “Moscow State University” but it does have its charms, such as a 24th-floor lounge with a gorgeous view of the city. I plan to hole up there tonight for an hour or two rereading a galley copy of Kevin Kelly’s WHAT TECHNOLOGY WANTS, which will come out in October. It’s worth rereading; Kelly argues that technology is as authentically alive as anything in biology, and like biological things it desires to grow and evolve. More than that, he argues that life itself is baked deep into the structure of the cosmos and should emerge anywhere it gets a chance. Fascinating book. I need a big view for these big thoughts.
