The Roots of Progress

Interview: Vox calls progress studies “one of the more intriguing intellectual movements out there”

I was interviewed by Kelsey Piper for Vox’s “Future Perfect”. Here’s a bit from the intro:

The progress studies movement is very small — mostly a handful of bloggers and researchers — but it’s one of the more intriguing intellectual movements out there. One of its leading figures is Jason Crawford, the author of a blog called The Roots of Progress that explores the history of important inventions and discoveries…. I sat down with Crawford to talk about what progress is, what the progress studies movement brings to the table, and what he thinks is missing from our national conversation about inventions, discoveries, and the societies that succeed at encouraging them.
