Kevin Kelly talks about how technology expands and grow much like organisms do in this evolution of technology keynote. The digital visionary approaches the concept of technology by posing the question "what does technology want?" Like biological organisms, genes are constantly evolving throughout history in order to become better adapted for certain tasks. As evolutions take place so too does the opportunity to carry out previously impossible tasks.

Technology works in much the same way; as things expand people are presented with more choices, possibilities, freedoms and differences. The tools that are being developed allow people to create new platforms from which other technologies will evolve out of. Technology presents people with the opportunity for self-expression and thus is deeply connected to way that people evolve, adapt and understand themselves.
