Book Watch: Steven Johnson on Innovation

Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation
Author: Steven Johnson
Pulisher: Riverhead Books
Release Date: October 5th, 2010

Steven Johnson is a best-selling author writing about technology, science, experience.  I am looking forward to his new book coming out this week.  I am especially fond of his work because it involves examining nexus points of multiple disciplines, and, as I believe, these are the most important points for us to focus on, as academics and as a society.  The places where we come together (as well as where fields of study come together) are the most powerful, since they involve applied integration.

BTW, check out the final rendering of the drawing in the second video... very cool.
