Why do we insist on placing the logo in the top left corner?

Hi everyone. First post here (excluding the job post a few days back).
What I wanted to ask everyone here is why does the logo need to be in the
top left corner of a page? Is this simply a consequence of convention?
Have there been studies indicating that users get frustrated when the logo's
placed on the right side? Or is there a more fundamental issue of
I'm covering my bases in regards to:
- The logo being a home button by including home in the global nav.
- Making sure the design reflects the brand identity with enough strength
that in the event the logo's hidden (i.e. small screen) the brand doesn't
- Leveraging the unconventional method of right-side placement to its
fullest (there's a lot you can do actually).
What are some of your thoughts regarding this issue?
