by Kevin Kelly, The Inevitable Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Inevitable books, A New York Times Bestseller From one of our leading technology thinkers and writers, a guide through the twelve technological imperatives that will shape the next thirty years and transform our lives Much of what will happen in the next thirty years is inevitable, driven by technological trends that are already in motion. In this fascinating, provocative new book, Kevin Kelly provides an optimistic road map for the future, showing how the coming changes in our lives—from virtual reality in the home to an on-demand economy to artificial intelligence embedded in everything we manufacture—can be understood as the result of a few long-term, accelerating forces. Kelly both describes these deep trends—interacting, cognifying, flowing, screening, accessing, sharing, filtering, remixing, tracking, and questioning—and demonstrates how they overlap and are codependent on one another. These larger forces will completely revolutionize the way we buy, work, learn, and communicate with each other. By understanding and embracing them, says Kelly, it will be easier for us to remain on top of the coming wave of changes and to arrange our day-to-day relationships with technology in ways that bring forth maximum benefits. Kelly’s bright, hopeful book will be indispensable to anyone who seeks guidance on where their business, industry, or life is heading—what to invent, where to work, in what to invest, how to better reach customers, and what to begin to put into place—as this new world emerges.
by Peter J. Adams, Reflecting On The Inevitable Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Reflecting On The Inevitable books, "Death studies have, over the last twenty years, witnessed a flourishing of research and scholarship particularly in areas such as dying and bereavement, cultural practices and fear of dying. But, despite its importance, a specific focus on the nature of personal mortality has attracted surprisingly little attention. This book breaks new ground by bringing together available ideas and research on the meaning of one's own death. Its content is organized around the question of how an ongoing relationship might be possible when the threat of consciousness coming to an end points to an unthinkable and unspeakable nothingness. The book then argues that, despite this threat, an ongoing relationship with one's own death is still possible by means of conceptual devices that help shape personal mortality into a relatable object. Four of these devices, or 'enabling frames', are examined: essential structures, passionate suffusion, point-of-transition and self-generative process. While each frame conceptualizes mortality differently, they share a capacity to move it from unintelligibility to something we can think and speak about, thereby enabling us to maintain an ongoing engagement. The final chapters explore ways in which pursuing a relationship with our own deaths could become a normal and acceptable activity throughout our lives"--

by Scott Cowen, The Inevitable City Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Inevitable City books, After seven years of service as the president of Tulane University, Scott Cowen watched the devastation of his beloved New Orleans at the hands of Hurricane Katrina. When federal, state, and city officials couldn't find their way to decisive action, Cowen, known for his gutsy leadership, quickly partnered with a coalition of civic, business, and nonprofit leaders looking to work around the old institutions to revitalize and transform New Orleans. This team led the charge to restore equilibrium and eventually to rebuild. For the past nine years, Cowen has continued this work, helping to bring the city of New Orleans back from the brink. The Inevitable City presents 10 principles that changed the game for this city, and, if adopted, can alter the curve for any business, endeavor, community—and perhaps even a nation.This is the story of the resurgence and reinvention of one of America's greatest cities. Ordinary citizens, empowered to actively rescue their own city after politicians and government officials failed them, have succeeded in rebuilding their world. Cowen was at the leading edge of those who articulated, shaped, and implemented a vision of transformative change that has yielded surprising social progress and economic growth: a drowned city identified with the shocking images of devastation and breakdown has transformed itself into a mecca of growth, opportunity, and hope.
by Damon White, The Inevitable Versus Destiny Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Inevitable Versus Destiny books, NEW BOOK BY DAMON WHITE. THE INEVITABLE VERSUS DESTINY is philosophical fiction, whereby, the two characters clash for conceptual superiority. The Inevitable, a force characterized by an insatiable desire for power and Destiny, an idea characterized by a benevolence to edify others by sharing wisdom and more, square off in face-offs. Example:"Destiny Reveals so that other revelations continue to open. The Inevitable Discloses so that other disclosures remain closed." The Inevitable attempts to use Destiny to use the rest of Us, while Destiny attempts to be used by Us to keep Us from being used by The Inevitable. Destiny is going to be used, Destiny just wants to be used properly. All too often we try to slip in The Inevitable in place of Our Destiny, and such leads to disastrous results and phony philosophical proclamations, such as, WAR IS INEVITABLE.If you have read another book like this one, it might have been the only other one. Enjoy!
