Johnson's Everything Bad is Good For You, one of the most talked-about books of 2005, argues that the increasing sophistication of television, films and video games are teaching us to think in more complex ways. At NC State, Johnson will discuss how pop culture is actually making us smarter and explore ways that innovators can take advantage of this phenomenon.
