Seattle- where else can you run an entire corporation from a laptop in a coffe shop?
High speed wireless internet in public places is not unusual. They have that in starbucks in Kuala Lumpur. All you need then is a decent laptop and the ability to connect to your company's network via the internet. So, the answer to your question is in almost any developed city.

I was about to say the same... but perhaps Tokyo just has concentrated modernness?... I don't know what most parts of the city look like, but it looks to be VERY futuristic, like out of a sci-fi book or something...

Before posting such messages you seriouly need to educate yourself about Dubai. I agree that Las Vegas is a gambling theme park, but Dubai is much better and more important. Dubai has a booming economy in tourism and commerce, and will become a major financial center in the Middle East- doesn't sound like a "disneyland" to me. Oil may run out in a few decades, but now oil is only 6% of Dubai's income, and that number drops every year, while the economy booms.

True

Ill rephrase my statement: Where else DOES anyone ACTUALLY run an entire multi-million doller corporation from a laptop in a starbucks? It is certainly possible in many other citys, but as far i know it has only so far actually been practiced in Seattle. It was actually a story on the news the other day.

Lovin the pics....but all that won't be for awhile. Right now I would have to go with Hong Kong for it's Skyline...and Tokyo for it's street level appearance. Dubai will never have their streets as ultra ultra modern like Tokyo's or the density of Hong Kong...but damn it will carve out it's own little niche of unique sense of architecture in the world.

You said it! Apparently, the urban dwellers of America abandoned their cities in the 80s as they fled to the 'burbs. Shocked and awed by the splendor of urban America at that time, up and coming cities elsewhere then followed and many have now surpassed the American achievements. Only recently, American cities have begun to enjoy new life being pumped into them and I hope the trend continues. As for European cities, well, their true charm lies in their history!

Hmmm! I see the point. Besides, why should weed, booze and bawdy display of intimacy determine the level of modernity, eh! There has never been a fixed definition of what is "modern", anyway. Smoking was hip in the 70s. Now it is frowned upon as a primary danger to public health. What a man to do?

Hong Kong.

All you usually see in pictures for Dubai is skyscrapers, you dont usually see the other older parts. Honk Kong is nothing but skyscrapers, there are no single houses.
Apparently thats what most of the world is going to be like in a few centuries, all tall buildings, so Hong Kong has a head start. Plus, Honk Kong has more scrapers than Dubai.

Maybe if these ever come to fruition than id say Tokyo:

TRY-2004: 2004meters


X-SEED 4000: 4000meters
