The World Economic Forum released its ranking of the top tech superpowers, and Denmark is now the worldwide high tech leader. Rounding out the top ten are Sweden, Singapore, Finland, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the US, Iceland, the UK and Norway. Yes, the UK is well behind the inventors of the cuckoo-clock and lutefisk – but at least it beat out my drunken relatives in Oslo. The dramatic slide of the US from top dog to back of the pack is attributable more to growing innovation and infrastructure in Europe than any laggardness in the US as such. Last year the UK came in 10 but has risen a slot to 9, possibly because of the newer, younger James Bond. [GT]
