The smartests cities in the World (from Forbes)
America’s 10 smartest cities,
“ranked them based on the percentage of the population age 25 and over
with at least a bachelors degree”.
1. Boulder, CO
2. Bethesda, MD
3. Ann Arbor, MI
4. Cambridge, MA
5. San Francisco, CA
6. Durham, NC
7. Fort Collins-Loveland, CO
8. Washington, DC
9. Bridgeport, Stamford, and Norwalk, CT
10. San Jose, Sunnyvale, and Santa Clara, CA

I guess New York City and Seattle lose on this criterion.

What bibliometric tool will make my life better

I would like to see some tool that will allow me to manipulate paper references in the following way:

- add a paper in pdf format
- add a reference for which a pdf is not available
- search for papers/references
- manually tag papers by topic and importance
- extract custom bib entries for each topic and export to bibtex and html
- papers can belong to multiple categories
- allow manual and group annotations of papers
- unix based with batch mode capabilities
- incorporate access control
- retrieve papers

I have been unable to find something like this. Any hints?


Lost in Paris

Look at this map of Paris
printed in the Dec. 24 issue of the New York Times.

The Champs-Elysées is shown in the wrong place (what is labeled as
“Champs-Elysées” is actually Avenue de Friedland/Boulevard Haussmann).
The Champs-Elysées is the avenue that links Place de l’Etoile to Place
de la Concorde.

Compare with this map:

or this one:,+france&ll=48.873861,2.294898&spn=0.006007,0.020548&t=h&hl=en

One can only wonder about the reason for this blunder by the New
York Times – perhaps trying to foil the discovery of the Holy Grail :)

Update (Dec. 30) The NYT web site has been updated with a corrected map showing the Champs-Elysées in the right place.
