Tools Never Die. Waddaya Mean, Never? : Krulwich Wonders… : NPR

Krulwich makes a bet he can find tools that have gone extinct but it turns out old technology doesn’t disappear like you’d think. Tools from centuries ago are still being made and used, by more people than you’d think.

Kevin Kelly should know better, but boldly, brassily, (and totally incorrectly, I’m sure), he said this on NPR:

"I say there is no species of technology that have ever gone globally extinct on this planet."
