Where good ideas come from

(Youtube Direktideas, via cpluv)

Das Promovideo zu Steven Johnsons Buch „Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation“ ist, so nehme ich schwer an, vom selben Zeichner und Animator gedreht, wie die RSA Animated-Clips, die ich hier schon mehrfach hatte.

Das Buch selbst klingt ebenfalls definitiv nach etwas, das ich unbedingt lesen muss:

Beginning with Charles Darwin's first encounter with the teeming ecosystem of the coral reef and drawing connections to the intellectual hyperproductivity of modern megacities and to the instant success of YouTube, Johnson shows us that the question we need to ask is, What kind of environment fosters the development of good ideas? His answers are never less than revelatory, convincing, and inspiring as Johnson identifies the seven key principles to the genesis of such ideas, and traces them across time and disciplines.

Hier noch sein Vortrag auf der TED Konferenz über dasselbe Thema:

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.
