eWeek ranks Seattle #1 tech spot outside of Silicon Valley


In an article in eWeek titled “Beyond the Valley: 10 Blooming U.S. Cities for Tech“, Deborah Rothberg ranks Seattle at the top of the list to become the next technology epicenter.

Seattle • City population: 570,430 • Companies that call it home: Amazon, RealNetworks, AT&T Wireless, T-Mobile • The details: The June 2006 Dice Report ranks Seattle No. 10 in available jobs, with 1,901 listed, up over 300 from one year ago. Indeed.com ranks Seattle No. 4 in number of tech jobs per capita, with 13 jobs per 1000 people. And a WashTech/CWA report issued this week calls Seattle a “bright spot” of technology growth in a recovering market.

I wonder what that means for the already over-inflated housing prices…
