Running Time

Steven Johnson discusses his new book,"Future Perfect: The Case For Progress In A Networked Age," presented by Harvard Book Store. The author of "Where Good Ideas Come From," and "Everything Bad Is Good For You," Johnson argues here that a new model of political change is on the rise, transforming everything from local governments to classrooms, from protest movements to health care. Johnson paints a compelling portrait of this new class of organization, which he calls a "peer network" -- interconnected webs of individuals that accomplish tasks and solve problems, sometimes over long periods of time. While they may interact with businesses, organizations, or governments, they are a distinct type of social structure that doesn't neatly fit with liberal or conservative economic and governmental models.
