Forbes' anuual list of the most broadband-connected cities in the U.S.
is out! Since 2007, Forbes has measured cities' wired quotient by computing the percentage of Internet users with high-speed connections, the number of companies providing high-speed Internet, and the number of public wireless Internet hot spots in a particular city. So who made the list? Well, the 2007 and 2008 list-topper was dethroned this year and fell to the #2 spot (It also happens to be my town! Rep yo city!), an underdog jumped from #11 last year to #3 on 2009's list thanks in part to a famous tech-savvy new resident, and a surprise entry at #4 cinched it's spot with a non-computer mouse...Check out Forbes' Web site
