I linked to this Wall Street Journal essay called the “The Genius of the Tinkerer” by Steven Johnson in my last post. It is an interesting piece which I will recommend that you read if you have not. He just released his new book last week called “Where Good Ideas Come from: A Natural History of Innovation” which l can’t wait to get my hands on. The Amazon reviews so far have been positive.
Here are two great video resources by Johnson in which he discusses some of the key ideas in his new book. I will recommend that you check them out.
This is a short (4:07 min) and cool visual representation of the book’s key ideas as narrated by Johnson and created by Cognitive Media – a UK based visual design agency.
This is a longer video (17:46 min) which Johnson did at the TED Global 2010 conference.
