Kevin Kelly writer, photographer, conservationist, or bizzare overly religious and obsessive nutjob

Look at this face!!! Its the kind of face that wouldn’t look amiss preaching religious jibber jabber on Patricks Street in Cork.

Its the beard that sticks out to me, the beard of a man with a back story.

And what a back story he has. He ‘ slept on the supposed spot where Jesus was crucified and  had a religious experience which led him to live as if he only had six months left to live. He  then went and lived peacefully with his parents, anonymously gave away his money, visited his friends, and came back home to “die” on the night of Halloween.’

I can’t imaging Kevin was a lady killer….but by gosh theres no denying his work in the technology theory and journalism field has made an impact on society today.
