"In 1993, Kelly helped launch Wired Magazine, a magazine that reports on the culture of technology. Under his leadership as its Executive Editor, Wired won the National Magazine Award for General Excellence (the industry's equivalent of an Oscar) in 1994 and 1997. Prior to Wired, Kelly was editor and publisher of the Whole Earth Review, a small-circulation magazine reporting on unorthodox technical and cultural news. He is the author of Out of Control: The New Biology of Machines, Economic and Social Systems, published by Addison Wesley (1994). This wide-ranging book is about how machines, the economy, and all large human-made inventions are becoming biological. Fortune magazine called it "essential reading for all executives." His book New Rules for the New Economy published in 1998 by Viking in the US and by 4th Estate in the UK, was a bestseller in the US and has been translated into German, Spanish, Italian, Greek, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Dutch, Swedish, and Estonian.
"Kelly's writing has appeared in many national and international publications such as the New York Times, The Economist, Time, Harpers, Science, GQ, and Esquire. Instead of going to college, he went to Asia as a photographer and has just published Asia Grace, a photographic essay of images collected during that trip. His photographs have appeared in LIFE and other national magazines. He has no college or university degrees."
