Top 10 IT Locations

Found by way of Slashdot: the top 10 IT locations. Despite the Internet, physical proximity does still matter. These are places for research and for starting businesses, and therefore, also for attracting talent.

The list:

1. Silicon Valley
2. Taiwan
3. Bangalore
4. Japan
5. San Fransisco
6. Zhongguancun, China
7. Finland
8. Fort Meade, Maryland
9. Romania
10. Boston

My complaint is that he list seems to mix up categories. Some listed are cities or states, but some are entire countries. Where in Finland, Japan, Taiwan, or Romania, exactly?


  1. Redmond is a good call. Maryland surprised me, had know idea that they were a hot bed of IT. This is a really great top ten list, you can post this to our site and then link back to your site. We are looking for top ten lists and our users can track back to your site. The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list.
