Technology Industry Seen Growing Fastest in New York

http://j.mp/IKNGso  (New York Times)

    The study found that the tech start-ups were concentrated in about 10
    ZIP codes in Lower Manhattan and Midtown, in part because attractive
    locations in Brooklyn and other boroughs lacked adequate broadband
    access. A significant problem is that many of these technology
    companies need a backup source of Internet access but usually cannot
    arrange affordable redundancy, Mr. Bowles said.  New York's broadband
    infrastructure deserved a grade of "B or B-minus," he said. "For a
    city that's trying to be a tech powerhouse, we need to have an A."
