The Top Ten

1 Tokyo Tokyo

Yeah... I really agree that tokyo, japan leads... I love japan than other country... They are well disciplined than korea.. I hate korea cause they always try themselves to be the top, but they forgot that japan cannot be defeated.. Gogogogo japan... And also japan's high technology starts so early than other countries...

Didn't know they had talking billboards. Or robots. Well, see ya America: I'm gonna go get me a robot! BROUHAHA!

IT is the most high tech city. and it has hundreds of it companies. It has many software technology parks than any other city. it is the best city in the India like the India.

South India has been more urban and industrialized than North India (Although Mumbai and Delhi are quite marvelous). With more impact from Western Influence Bangalore,Chennai, and Mumbai could be the cause for India being a great technological superpower.

City of the future... Bangalore

4 Paris Paris

Yes Paris with San-Francisco, Zurich and Tokyo are equal.

Well, I've started working in Paris, I do not think it's the top 1 but it's on the right way to be.

Paris will get in 2016 the first incubator of startups in the world,with more than 1000 startups in once incubator.

Currently only in Paris we find more than 40 Incubators.

Sure it's far from he Silicon Valley, but just to remind you that French people are the first foreigners working in the valley with more than 40 000 French.

7 Shanghai

Lots of lights cover the place all night. Most of the buildings look like they're from 100 years from now. Shanghai's one of the most high tech cities in Asia. Or maybe in the world. Who put this as 7? This should be at least 4 or 3.

If it's not number 1 now it will be...people obviously haven't seen how fast it is developing

This city is way more technological than New York, Hong Kong and Tokyo. I've been in all those places to confirm it. I'm surprised it is not in the top 3.

Lights everywhere. So many buildings.
