Stephen Johnson - Wonderland: How Play Made the World (UCSB)

  • 5 days ago · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Tonight there's a FREE event at UCSB that may interest you all! 

And if you attend you can get a free copy of his new book, Wonderland. I think I'll get there quite early to be sure of a spot.

“One of the Top 10 Brains of the Digital Future.”Prospect magazine

One of our most inventive thinkers, Steven Johnson is a leading light of today’s interdisciplinary, collaborative, open-minded approach to innovation and his writings have influenced everything from cutting-edge ideas in urban planning to the fight against terrorism. He is the bestselling author of nine books – including Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation and How We Got to Now. In his latest book, Wonderland, Johnson shows how the pursuit of wonder is a powerful driver of world-shaping technological change, and that future is found wherever people are having the most fun.

A book signing will follow the lecture
