"San Francisco and Silicon Valley may pride itself as the US technology capital but an official study of the most connected cities in America has shown that it does not even make the top five." The definition of connected, according to the study, is "the number of connections to and from each city through 41 net backbones." That seems like a pretty limited definition, let alone adequate to determine, "The higher up the list a city is placed, the higher economic growth it is likely to experience over the next seven years," as a co-author of the report apparently predicted. How silly. <via jish>
