Jan. 23, 2012
From Texas to Taiwan, these communities are adding jobs.

The Intelligent Community Forum, a think tank that studies economic and social development, named its Top Seven Intelligent Communities of 2012 last week.

"Each of these communities has created a uniquely powerful ecosystem on a foundation of information and communications technology. By becoming platforms for innovation, they are creating a better life for citizens on all rungs of the economic ladder and a vibrant future for the next generation," said ICF Co-founder Louis Zacharilla who presented the Top Seven at the awards luncheon in Honolulu, during PTC'12.

The winners are:

Austin, Texas
Oulu, Finland
Quebec City, Quebec, Canada
Riverside, California
Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada
Stratford, Ontario, Canada
Taichung City, Taiwan
