TECH STATE: Celebrated historian Margaret O'Mara talks about how the supposed rebels and dreamers of Silicon Valley have been in bed with the state.

Next week at the Hammer Theatre, University of Washington history professor and author Margaret O’Mara will be giving a free talk on the quiet synchronicity between privacy, tech disruption, and America’s political history. The discussion will be drawn from her forthcoming book, and measure the relationships between Silicon Valley, Sacramento and Washington D.C. She has the cred to back it up too; O’Mara is a Distinguished Lecturer of the Organization of American Historians, a past fellow for numerous organizations and think tanks including the Center for the Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, as well as a former employee of the Clinton White House.
