In the meantime, a few quick updates of interesting reviews and other responses from around the Web. The amazing Cory Doctorow wrote a review for BoingBoing that called the book a "multidisciplinary hymn to diversity, openness, and creativity." Salon is running an interview with me called "Epiphanies Are Overrated." Tuesday's Wall Street Journal featured a very smart column by Gordon Crovitz on Facebook, The Social Network, Larry Lessig, and Good Ideas. You can watch a video of me drinking a very large glass of Malbec and discussing the book on Asylum's Drinks With Writers series.
Finally, tomorrow's Financial Times includes a long review of the book by their columnist John Gapper; it may be my favorite review yet, and it ends with these lines:
"It is much more stimulating and insightful than the average innovation tome and Johnson does not attempt to lock the reader into a Gladwellian conclusion. Instead, it is like one of the reefs that initially baffled Darwin and are so admired by Johnson – a huge diversity of bright ideas co-exist happily without destroying or spoiling each other."
I suspect that will find its way onto the paperback jacket.
