Boulder #2 CyberCity in the US

Here’s an interesting stat.  The Rocky Mountain News states that Boulder ranks No. 2 among ‘cybercities’ with 230 high-tech works per 1,000This is according to a study by the American Electronics Association.

The top five are:

  • San Jose/Silicon Valley: 286
  • Boulder: 230
  • Huntsville, AL: 188
  • Durham, NC: 156
  • Washington: 132

It’s a strange list, especially since San Jose/Silicon Valley isn’t actually a city!  Just more proof that you can come up with a list for pretty much any measurement you want.  I wonder if this counts all the folks on laptops hanging out all day at Trident.
