I normally run about ten years behind, so reading this book solidified this reality. Turns out the place I call home, at least part-time, is a tech uber-hub. Data, tech, science, running at fever pitch levels on the mesa. This book follows the path of several pioneering tech and science giants who all found themselves landing in Santa Fe at about the same time. Some through luck, others through networking. Founded places like Santa Fe Institute. Fascinated by how these things happen, and this book made it easy. Reads like a novel.
