Steven Johnson
Political Progress in a Networked Age

Don’t despair that our political system is hopelessly gridlocked by old ideas and entrenched interests. In Future Perfect, bestselling science author and media theorist Steven Johnson (Where Good Ideas Come From, The Invention of Air) says progress and solutions are still possible. Johnson argues that a new model of political change is on the rise—informed by new connections blazed by the internet, but not dependent on technology—that is capable of transforming everything from local governments to classrooms, from protest movements to health care. Best of all, this political worldview disrupts and confounds the traditional boundaries of liberal and conservative. Whether you embrace Johnson’s optimism or cling to conventional wisdom, don’t miss your chance to join a Seattle audience in testing this provocative thesis. Presented by the Town Hall Center for Civic Life, with University Book Store. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True/Brown Foundation.
