Where good ideas come from (short film)

I really enjoy these animated lectures. I posted one some time ago on The Crisis of Capitalism, and there's a good one out there about 21st Century Enlightenment. This one's more relevant: it's about how innovation happens. Where do good ideas come from and is the Internet helping or hurting social innovation? Does the constant flow of new information from everywhere or dicing of ideas into single sentences (Twitter) help or hurt breakthrough innovation? It's only four minutes long. Give it a watch.

Still interested? You can watch Steven Johnson's entire 17 minute TED speech below (via Nerdcore).
