Engineering departments often constitute the major locus for the capitalization of design knowledge. But such an accumulation may be more diffuse and spread between various actors in a regional ecosystem. In Silicon Valley, this dispersion of knowledge makes it more accessible to new actors and favors the regeneration of the region due to the emergence of new firms and technological trajectories. This analysis is drawn from the various accounts and publications of the history of the Valley which have become available.
