Mind Wide Open

I enjoy reading stuff by people who seem to have interesting minds.  Today’s case in point is Steven Johnson, whose work is always thought-provoking and who is the subject of this terrific interview at Powells.com.

You mentioned that you’re working on another book. What’s it about?

Johnson: I’ve sold it, but I haven’t had much time to think about it. In some form, it’s a book about creativity that will involve the long zoom idea: thinking about creativity that’s not necessarily something that happens between you and your notepad, but everything from the neurons in your brain all the way up to the city you’re thinking in the middle of.
