LA Ranks As Top Tech Town, Says Scientific American

A new ranking of the top cities for technology ranks Los Angeles as number three, in a list of the top ten cities for technology access and "geek friendliness". In the ranking, Los Angeles was number three, behind Seattle and the San Francisco Bay Area, but ahead of such cities as New York, Boston, and Washington, D.C. The list was compiled by Wired Magazine, and factored in the number of stores selling tech gadgets, free wireless Internet access, technology jobs, engineering schools--not to mention an "active geek community."
