Where Good Ideas Come From – Meet Steven Johnson

Posted by Zaid Rasid in Cloud Backup

To conclude our keynote series, we’re excited to introduce Steven Johnson who will be joining the 2014 Asigra Partner Summit.Steven Johnson People often credit their ideas to individual “Eureka!” moments. But according to Steven, history tells a different story. In his most well known TED talk, Steven discusses the origins of Where Good Ideas Come From. And when he’s not garnering over 2.5 million views of his Ted talks, he is busy authoring eight books and hosting a six-part television series that will be featured soon on PBS. We’re excited to have Steven join us at the summit this year as one of the opening keynotes. You can find him on Tuesday, June 17, 2014.

An optimistic vision of progress and innovation.

Steven is the leading light of today's interdisciplinary, collaborative, open-minded approach to innovation. His writings have influenced everything from cutting-edge ideas in urban planning to the battle against 21st-century terrorism. Steven was chosen by Prospect magazine as one of the Top Ten Brains of the Digital Future. He unites a deep understanding of scientific progress with a sharp sensitivity to contemporary online trends. Together, those traits give him an unmatched insight into how ideas emerge and spread and how they affect the world today.

Steven’s work on the history of innovation has inspired a six-part series on PBS: HOW WE GOT TO NOW with Steven Johnson (Fall 2014). As the host of the series, Steven will explore the power and the legacy of great ideas, why and how ideas happen, and their sometimes unintended results.

He is a contributing editor to Wired magazine and has written for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Nation, and many other periodicals. He’s appeared on many high-profile television programs, including The Charlie Rose Show, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer. Steven blogs at stevenberlinjohnson.com.
