Under Kelly's direction and editorship, Whole Earth was the first consumer magazine to report on virtual reality, ecological restoration, the global teenager, internet culture and artificial life (to name just a few early trends in the 1980s). Kelly is a founding member of the board of The Long Now Foundation, which is a group of individuals encouraging long-term thinking. He is also founding editor and co-publisher of the popular Cool Tools website, which has been reviewing tools daily.
