Business friendly cities in the USA
And here is the list of high tech cities outside Silicon Valley in the USA https://rentberry.com/blog/best-city-to-launch-startup. Seattle is one of the leading startup hubs in the country. Denver also has a business-friendly climate for tech straps. And Austin is one of the fastest growing and most diverse cities in the state of Texas and has quietly become a hub for innovation and entrepreneurial activity.

my few cents
As seasoned high tech workers, I believe that Shenzhen, Beijing and Shanghai should be within top 10 outside of Valley:

Shenzhen has Huawei, Tencent (best known for WeChat), DJI (best known for Phantom drones), and thousands of startups and best incubators.

Beijing has Baidu, Didi (main competitor of Uber), hundreds of VCs with moneys and ambitions for high tech industry.

Shanghai had R&D centers for most international high tech giants.

BTW, HongKong is still an important financial center, but far away from high tech hub.

Another obvious miss is Bangelore, India.

Helsinki is missing
Helsinki is missing from the list. I don't know what was the criteria for choosing the cities but Helsinki is the tech hub in Northern Europe. Not forgetting Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Oslo, which are also highly technologically advanced cities together with Tallinn. This can be seen and felt everywhere you go in the cities.

Re: Shinning Tech Examples: Singapore and Hong Kong
Technorati, 

Singapore is a such a massive tech hub that Slush has chosen it as the second city to host the conference (the first being Helsinki). September is going to be great in Singapore for technology companies.

Re: Shinning Tech Examples: Singapore and Hong Kong
It's great to hear the technology practice in Singapore. I think this is more relevant for countries which have the similar traffic issue.

Shinning Tech Examples: Singapore and Hong Kong
I have heard alot of good things about tech in Singapore.  I would love to see it first hand, an entire country optimizing technology throughout. 

And not to be outdone by Hong Kong.  Very impressive.

New York, New York Tech Startups
Nice to understand the direction tech is taking in NY.  Always progressive, and in today's world no different.  It will be intersting to see what NY startup's achieve in the area of Big Data, mobile tech and social media.

Re: Well-travelled
Thanks Kelly for this great information regarding tech hubs outside Silon Valley.  I knew of a few of these spots and was surprised by some new spots I wasn't aware of.
