US dethroned as tech superpower -- hint: not by S.Korea
We're certainly not surprised to see the US fall from the top of the technology heap. While still in the top 10 (above Iceland and below The Netherlands), it's now our taller, thinner Nordic friends in Denmark and Sweden holding the gold and silver positions, respectively. This according to a report by the World Economic Forum. Their rankings are based on the integration of technology in business, available infrastructure, and whether the local government creates a culture which fosters innovation. And what of our technology overlords: S.Korea? 19th, just ahead of Estonia. Hmm. Time to unleash the robots and defend your honor!
