Nation's geekiest workforce belongs to Silicon Valley

After all, the National Science Foundation defines a geek as a worker with a college degree in science and engineering, or someone who works in those fields, and the San Jose-Sunnyvale region has plenty of those.

Next on the list is Boulder (Colorado), followed by Huntsville (Alabama), Framingham (Massachusetts) and Durham (North Carolina).

The San Francisco-San Mateo region has only half as many geeks as the Silicon Valley -- it's No. 19 on the list.
