I posted an article earlier this week claiming Raleigh, NC is primed to be an open source hub. In the comments, Evan Prodromou shared a similar and coincidentally timed blog post: Montreal the Open Source startup hub.

The race was on. Then Portland, OR joined the open source city conversation via Twitter.

Tell us what you think and add any comments on why your city should be considered in a future poll.
