You could always put the West London belt of developments as one or as separate zones (Chelsea Harbour , Earl's Court and White City/Shepherd's Bush).

Old Oak Common , Frequently updated ?

I only update that thread because no else does

Great map anyway Steve !

If I'd seen the question about 10pm I'd have probably spent about 4 hours on a really neat and tidy map that remembered to include all the above.

But I saw it when I was just about to go out (to look at Strawberry Hill House, which was actually closed anyway, because I didn't read the web page properly, ffs), so I took about 5 minutes and it's accordingly quick and dirty!

I mean, I could try and pretend I didn't include Earls Court etc because they haven't really got into full swing yet, but I included OOC and that's still in pre-planning

The report is based on data from 11,000 global startup companies, interviews with more than 200 entrepreneurs worldwide, and data from Crunchbase and other sources. Its ranking gauges the world’s leading startup ecosystems—the broad infrastructure of talent, knowledge, entrepreneurs, venture capital, and companies that make up a startup community. The report measures these ecosystems based on their quality of talent, pool of venture capital resources, experience and mentorship provided by startup founders, market reach of their companies, and the ultimate performance and exit value of their companies.

The graph below shows the top 20 global startup ecosystems in the world, according to the study:

You are absolutely correct inno4321, Seoul should be right up there, probably in the top 5. The report does mention that due to language barriers, it was not able to collect sufficient data to evaluate cities in China, Taiwan, Japan, or South Korea, a pretty big omission I know, but understandable.

You are spot on about Seoul though, an incredible city, a bit of a toy shop for Tech geeks like myself!

Great updates and London is booming!

This may be a bit off topic but I was wondering does anyone have any idea how many people live within the M25, not just London? I can't seem to find an answer anywhere. Sorry if it is off topic but I'm just very curious to find out. Surely there's at least a good 10-11 million people no? London itself I suppose is about 8 million but doesn't the M25 go beyond London?

Cheers!

The London Metropolitan area, which is as close to the definition you asked about is approx 14m, the largest in the EU.

Not like you to do a sneery and ignorant post, are you ok??

Why bother even to post in this thread, you just come across as a thoroughly unlikeable person with a huge chip on your shoulder, jealousy even. Your probably a pleasant person elsewhere but your just come across as a tw*t here and as such your not particularly popular. Why would anybody deliberately want to make themselves unpopular.

Its pretty clear you don't like London and equally you have limited knowledge of the place so why not just ignore the thread if it bugs you so much?

The Metropolitan area extends well beyond the M25, as it includes the satellite towns.

Greater London (the city proper), the Greater London Built-up Area (urban area), and the commuter belt (metro area) are different concepts, that don't directly relate with the M25.

If GL omits areas that are however close and contiguous with the rest of the city, the metro area is on the other hand a functional, rather than spatial, definition of city.

A safe bet is to say London is a city of 10 million people, and one of the 4 megacities in Europe.

Yeah cause I was thinking that the metro area wold go beyond the M25. I'm surprised it has never been a part of any census or anything.

The M25 bisects administrative divisions, so no accurate data for 'population within the M25' is readily available.

The report isn't about tech, it's about startups...
In that vein, they're obviously looking at access to capital, etc.
Most tech companies are startups but not all startups are tech/internet companies.

so next time you see people throwing around hyperbole about London's traditional urban character "vanishing", "the entirety of London at threat" and so on, you can think of this for a dose of perspective :P

(I originally wrote "reality" instead of "perspective" there, but I shouldn't be outright misleading, this map is somewhat a joke, as there are lots of smaller pockets of dense/tall/urban areas within the blue bit, and there are also "blue bits" within the central bit I left unshaded. nevertheless, I hope it illustrates the sheer scale of traditional suburbia which remains in comparison to the more heavily (re)developing parts this thread inevitably focuses on)
Great job with the maps stevekeiretsu

For London postcodes, barring the 1st of each, they go by alphabetical order of district.

For example:
  • N1: closest northern districts to the centre of London (Islington etc)
  • N2 to N22: by alphabetical order
    For example, N2 is East Finchley, N3 is Finchley, N4 is Finsbury Park, N5 is Highbury, N6 is Highgate, N7 is Holloway, N8 is Hornsey, and so on.

  • E1: closest eastern districts to the centre of London (Spitalfields etc)
  • E2 to E18: by alphabetical order
    For example, E2 is Bethnal Green, E3 is Bow, E4 is Chingford, E5 is Clapton, E6 is East Ham, E7 is Forest Gate, E8 is Hackney, and so on.

  • SE1: closest southeastern districts to the centre of London (Southwark etc)
  • SE2 to SE18 (the original SE districts): by alphabetical order
    For example, SE2 is Abbey Wood, SE3 is Blackheath, SE4 is Brockley, SE5 is Camberwell, SE6 is Catford, SE7 is Charlton, SE8 is Deptford, and so on.
  • SE20 to SE28 (districts added later): by alphabetical order
    For example, SE20 is Anerley, SE21 is Dulwich, SE22 is East Dulwich, SE23 is Forest Hill, SE24 is Herne Hill, SE25 is South Norwood, SE26 is Sydenham, and so on.

  • SW1: closest southwestern districts to the centre of London (Belgravia etc)
  • SW2 to SW10 (the original SW districts): by alphabetical order
    For example, SW2 is Brixton, SW3 is Chelsea, SW4 is Clapham, SW5 is Earls Court, SW6 is Fulham, SW7 is South Kensington, SW8 is South Lambeth, and so on.
  • SW11 to SW20 (districts added later): by alphabetical order
    For example, SW11 is Battersea, SW12 is Balham, SW13 is Barnes, SW14 is Mortlake, SW15 is Putney, SW16 is Streatham, SW17 is Tooting, and so on.


Of course some districts overlap (for example Brixton is as much SW9 as it is SW2) and most postcodes cover more than one district (for example SE3 is Blackheath and Kidbrooke) but that's the general scheme of things.

Four shortlisted for last major Crossrail job

Crossrail has shortlisted four contractors for a £30m job to build a permanent train sidings depot at Plumstead in south east London

The job is the last major civil engineering project on the giant Crossrail project and has attracted Vinci, Balfour Beatty, Alstom Transport UK and VolkerFitzpatrick into the contest.

Under the present timetable, the contract will be awarded in June next year to allow a one year period before works actually start on site and the maintenance facility is handed over in mid 2018.
