Kevin Kelly

Kevin Kelly’s decades-long career as a writer, tech thinker, and founding executive editor of “Wired” magazine is living proof that there’s no age limit on curiosity or education. He summarizes this concept in a collection of advice he compiled in 2020 titled “Excellent Advice for Living: Wisdom I Wish I’d Known Earlier,” excerpted here. Too often, society equates aging with a decrease in progress, novelty, and innovation. Per Kelly’s advice, the best way to push back against this is to remain open to the possibilities of surprise, wonder, and astonishment. No matter how old we are, we’re never too old to improve ourselves, learn something new, or change our minds.
