In this insightful podcast episode, James interviews Wired editor Kevin Kelly on his latest book, Excellent Advice for Living: Wisdom I Wish I Knew Earlier. The conversation delves into various topics such as parenting by example, the genius of being the "only" rather than the "best", and the art of honing the skill of being a friend.
The conversation also explores the concept of working on ideas in 5-year segments - Kelly happens to do so against a 'doomsday clock' predicting how much longer he'll live. Bookending the interview, the two discuss Kevin's daily art project focused on creating new work each day with the assistance of conversational user interface AI and what Kevin learned about the technology's strengths and weaknesses throughout the process.
