If you think about some of America's greatest innovations, social changes and inventions, chances are they probably originated in greater Boston. In fact, we're the leading city in the country in terms of generating world-changing ideas: from self government, to the telephone, modern surgery, vaccines, and even chocolate chip cookies.

That's the case made by Professor Robert Krim of Framingham State University, and the founder of the Boston History and Innovation Collaborative. He's the author, with Alan Earls, of the new book "Boston Made: From Revolution To Robotics, Innovations That Changed The World."
