Paris is still being part of the “Alpha Regions” of the world
Techcrunch is taking on the question “Why do developers who could work anywhere flock to the world’s most expensive cities?”. Which leads me to learn that the 6 “Alpha Regions” of the world are SF, LA, NYC, Boston, Toronto, London, Paris.
Even if it’s not perceived to be at the center of the technological metamorphose, Paris is still being seen as a place where you can get stuff done.
It’s also one of the places in the world where you will get the most infrastructure, meaning technological infrastructure but also political, democratic, social, medical, legal, education and even cognitive infrastructure.
You get what you pay for.
