Journalist Eric Weiner Maps 'The Geography of Genius'

at 9:00 AM
 (Justin Tsucalas)

Why did Silicon Valley take root in the San Francisco Bay Area and not, say, in Texas? And why do so many attempts at replicating Silicon Valley fail? Journalist Eric Weiner tackles that question in his latest work, "The Geography of Genius," a globe-trotting investigation into the secrets of human ingenuity. And tell us -- why is the Bay Area so conducive to innovation?

Guests:

Eric Weiner, author of "The Geography of Genius: A Search for the World's Most Creative Places from Ancient Athens to Silicon Valley"; columnist for BBC Travel
