Where Good Ideas Come From by Steven Johnson

One of our most innovative, popular thinkers takes on-in exhilarating style-one of our key questions: Where do good ideas come from? Steven Johnson pairs the insight of his bestselling Everything Bad Is Good for You and the dazzling erudition of The Ghost Map and The Invention of Air to address an urgent and universal question: What sparks the flash of brilliance? How does groundbreaking innovation happen?

  1. Hey Chad!

    Thank you for this. Loved it. Love the talk and the drawing and gradual appearance on the page of something that makes my creative mind feel all fuzzy and happy. (I especially like the sound of good ideas (or novels?) sometimes needing ten years to materialize and develop fully.

    Having just cleaned up my writing desk yesterday, I shall now go and see what your other post is about.

    Your posts are wonderful with my morning coffee 🙂

    Hope you’re well. How’s Escher (think I’m a few posts behind. I saw something pass by on it.)

    I’m wearing my Madison t-shirt today. Makes me happy 🙂

    All Fuzzy in Fuckville, Luxembourg,
