    Steven Johnson

    PBS Television Host and Author 

    Steven JohnsonThursday, Oct. 13

    Performing Arts Center

    Johnson’s writings have influenced everything from cutting-edge ideas in urban planning to the battle against 21st-century terrorism.

    Johnson was chosen by Prospect magazine as one of the Top Ten Brains of the Digital Future and The Wall Street Journal called him “one of the most persuasive advocates for the role of collaboration in innovation.” 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.
