I enjoy watching documentaries about history and I found a series by Steven Johnson called How We Got to Now . After viewing the series, twice because I liked it so much, I decided to find other videos he had done. Below is a Ted Talk he did back in 2010. The video is 17 minutes long and I enjoy the way he presents his information. Very thought provoking. Enjoy!
If you are interested in watching the full videos of the documentary series “How We Got to Now” they are available on Netflix.
