Why would anyone suggest NYC is more geeky than Seattle? Crazy talk

A recent article in the New York Times raises the topic of which town is geekier, Seattle or New York.

Ok, I'll hold back my reaction for a few seconds. Sure, I guess NYC has a few interesting tech initiatives and a certain robust East Coast energy.

But geeky it is not. It's nowhere near as geeky as Seattle, which itself knows it's really not quite in the big leagues next to Silicon Valley or even Boston.

Seattle indeed has it over a lot of other contenders, like Austin, Denver or Portland. It's also head and shoulders more tech-centric than New York is.  End of that discussion.
