*About the Conversation*

The market versus the state. Big capital versus big government. Just about
everything we talk about in politics today revolves around those two poles.
What if there's a third option? Instead of those monoliths, imagine a web
of collaboration that's neither market nor state where no one is in charge
because everyone is in charge. In his new book, "Future Perfect: The Case
for Progress in a Networked World," author Steven Johnson argues that the
core principles that apply to the design and function of the Internet could
be applied to solving many different kinds of problems, across dozens of
sectors, including cities. What if the most powerful tool to advance the
cause of social progress is the peer-to-peer network?

A livestream will also be available at<>
Hosts: Aaron Naparstek is a visiting scholar at MIT's Department of Urban
Studies and Planning; Ethan Zuckerman is director of the Center for Civic
Media, a collaboration between MIT Comparative Media Studies and the MIT
Media Lab.
