Place Matters: The Alchemy of Innovation in Utah and Beyond

Throughout human history – from ancient Mesopotamia to Renaissance Florence to modern Silicon Valley – certain places have been home to remarkable clusters of technological and social innovation at particular moments in time. What are the distinctive characteristics of place that foster innovation and invention? In her address, historian Margaret O'Mara places the story of Utah's technology through time in the broader context of history, place and the alchemy of innovation.
