The best tech city in the US
By Dave Winer on Saturday, December 17, 2011 at 12:56 PM.

The best tech city in the US is not New York. For one very simple reason. #

The Internet service in NY, for the average home, on average, sucks. #

I'm using Time-Warner now. It's the only option for most NYers (or something like it). #

At my last apartment I had FIOS, which is much better. #


NY has internet for consumers. It's no good for creators. #

One more thing.  #

Has Mayor Bloomberg said anything about SOPA? #

I know he's all bullish on NY as a tech hub, but it's hard to imagine much growth in tech anywhere with SOPA in force.  #

I've heard that the mayor is a pragmatist. These two issues, local bandwidth and SOPA are really pragmatic issues. #
