Top 10 Digital Cities In The World

Ask any North American what the tech capital of the world is and it's a surefire bet most of them will say California's Silicon Valley, which is home to Google, eBay, Cisco and Hewlett-Packard. Expand that question to top digital cities across the globe and the answer looks very different. Australia's theage.com recently ranked global cities for their techiness based on broadband speed, cost and availability, wireless internet access, technology adoption, government support for technology, education and technology culture and future potential. Only two US cities made the cut.

The Top Digital Cities: 1. Seoul 2. Singapore 3. Tokyo 4. Hong Kong 5. Stockholm 6. San Francisco and Silicon Valley 7. Tallinn 8. New York 9. Beijing 10. New Songdo City.

Apparently, Asian cities scored well on broadband speed and availability, mainly because they have concentrated populations in a small land area. Stockholm, San Francisco and Silicon Valley didn't feature the same affordability of fast broadband in Asian cities but did boost "high levels of education and a culture in favor of technology." The piece says Tallinn and Beijing are "cities to watch."

The list is pretty predictable, but does allow a much broader view of digital communities around the world and widens up the choices for the geeky vacation spots list. What cities do you think they left off the list?
