A TV Show that will examine Innovation in, “How We Got to Now”

PBS will be creating a show that will look at the history of innovation and discuss the influence it has had on social change. The show will take a close look at places, such as coffeehouses, that are some of the most important locations ever created and why. The concept of the show is based on Steven Johnson’s book, “Where Good Ideas Come From.” The hope of this program, which is set to air in October of this year, is to become a launching pad for exploring. Mr. Johnson is said to be involved, as well as host, the program by designing the layout of everything, including the website, which he hopes will become an interactive place where people can share ideas and innovate.
