In fact, it's much more dynamic than San Francisco, whose location at the top of this list is baffling to a lot of posters including me. Silicon Valley is indeed the source of huge amounts of innovation, but it's a good 40 miles south of San Francisco. And, in fact, it's a lot closer to San Jose ... say no more.
Wrong about what?? Did you even read my posts in entirety and also look for context or did you just cherry pick my response to someone else and assume that I said London wasn't dynamic for whatever reason lol? I never contended London at all and was challenging the list as a whole - not some individual cities. Perhaps you should read all my posts and get back to me.. As a matter of fact, you are questioning the integrity of the list yourself lol

Having cities ranked according to specific criteria is alright, but it'd be helpful and a lot more interesting to see what data they're using to come to the conclusion they have.

How about I don't and we just call it a day. Perhaps if you were more constructive and less combative in your responses, you'd save yourself pointless "confusion".

Nice way to deflect the fact that you didn't read my posts! To be clear to you - I in no way made the allegation that London wasn't a dynamic city in any way, yet you try to pin it on me for as yet unknown reason(s) lol...Perhaps if you actually read posts before cherry picking your responses you wouldn't get combative responses from people you wrongfully accuse of something they didn't say, allege or even remotely insinuate.

Again, If you read my posts you'd understand you are wrong here - I never ever said that London wasn't dynamic in ANY way. I said I challenged the overall integrity of the list and its criteria... cities I cited that I didn't even think should be on the list vs some I thought should be - London wasn't one of them btw - I didn't even mention London until the other dude did!! You yourself challenged the list by questioning the placement of London vs S.F - we're on the same team here and you don't even know it

I am guess this list have something to do with business and tech and their development? Some great cities on the list, but I'm not sure if I would consider some of the others dynamic for living or even visiting.
