  1. Where good ideas come from

    People often credit their ideas to individual "Eureka!" moments. But Steven Johnson shows how history tells a different story. His fascinating tour takes us from the "liquid networks" of London’s coffee houses to Charles Darwin’s long, slow hunch to today’s high-velocity web.

  2. Science Friday Archives: Steven Johnson and ‘Where Good Ideas Come From”

    How did Darwin develop some of his ideas? Why did YouTube burst onto the social media scene when it did? And how are those two developments connected?

    In this segment, we’ll talk with Steven Johnson, author of the book "Where Good Ideas Come From." We’ll talk about how great ideas come to be, and what conditions help to foster creativity and spur advances in thought.

  3. Where Good Ideas Come From: Steven Johnson at the LSE

    Steven Johnson has spent twenty years immersed in creative industries, was active at the dawn of the internet and has a unique perspective that draws on his fluency in fields ranging from neurobiology to new media. In his new book, he identifies the key principles to the genesis of great ideas, from the cultivation of hunches to the importance of connectivity and how best to make use of new technologies. By recognising where and how patterns of creativity occur – whether within a school, a software platform or a social movement – he shows how we can make more of our ideas good ones. This event celebrates the publication of his latest book Where Good Ideas Come From: A Natural History of Innovation.
