Every tech list has a different set of inclusions/exclusions -- even if it's in the same category, like "tech job openings". That's why all lists have different leaders.

I'm not really sure what most people are referring to when they say "tech". While Boston is a top city in computer technology it is arguably number 1 in biotechnology. Of the world's top 10 pharmaceutical companies, 9 of them have major presences in Boston/Cambridge

I follow my local tech and biomedical industries pretty closely since my employer builds buildings, TIs, etc., for both, and following them is part of my job. Generally the two don't overlap a lot in terms of industry associations, etc. That's despite a fair amount of overlap, like life-science functions that require huge amounts of computing power, complex medical diagnostic equipment, etc.

But once again, every list is different.

Where did you see ATL at number 11? I can only see 10 when I click into it.
There is also the Denver Tech Center south of Denver on the east side.

They all seem to have Seattle, SV, Austin, Boston, NYC, DC, and LA in them one way or another.

Well then who will listen to KSFO here in SF? It's a sore thumb con talk radio, broadcasting to an audience of only a few thousand in the Bay Area, but have an ardent online following from middle America.

KSFO has been through various types of ownership, though this current one is actually teethering on crude in your face racism and xenophobia.

iHeart has a cash flow problem, but there is no reason why it's exit strategy is nothing short of the next Sirius XM. Which is a dormant stock yet popular product with some (limited) potential, but VR and AR are changing everything for media, so it's an opportunity for iHeart to recognize the changing tide and maybe avoid a Sirius XM by investing in nascent technology.

A rather large lake separates Seattle and Bellevue. One thing they're not is "twin" cities. Bellevue was a suburb that grew into a city.
