Top Tech Town (Not)

Wired came out with a list of the top 10 tech towns in the states. Our neighbors to the east, west and south, New York, Pittsburgh and DC all made it. Alas, Philadelphia loses. The criteria include proximity to top ranked engineering schools and free wifi. Well, we have some great engineering schools but that city-wide wifi project isn’t quite complete and when it is, there will be a charge to use it anyway. Another criteria is tech jobs, which tend to all be buried in suburban office park campuses, far away from the evil city wage tax. Perhaps if they’d extended the limits, as they did for the “San Francisco Bay Area” we would have had a chance.
