An Evening with Steven Johnson discussing his new book Future, Perfect: The Case for Progress in a Networked Age

Steven Johnson is the best-selling author of seven books on the intersection of science, technology and personal experience. His writings have influenced everything from the way political campaigns use the Internet, to cutting-edge ideas in urban planning, to the battle against 21st-century terrorism. In 2010, he was chosen by Prospect magazine as one of the Top Ten Brains of the Digital Future. 

Join him, along with Personal Democracy Media's Micah Sifry and other special guests for an evening discussion about his forthcoming book Future, Perfect: The Case for Progress in a Networked Age. Publishers Weekly calls "fascinating and compelling" and says "Johnson’s thought-provoking ideas steer us steadily into the future."
