Why not NYC?  Crappy place, crappier weather.  Yeah, yeah, there's always 
pockets of someplace nice... but overall it just sucks.

If you're going to work like a slave and have no real life then you might as 
well be doing it somewhere that has better weather and a somewhat friendlier 
attitude.

I'd chose Seattle over the Valley, if just because it doesn't all look like 
the same boring-ass office park.  The Valley's just one huge-ass clone of a 
New Jersey office park, but without the shitty winter weather and crappy 
attitude from the locals.  God, but it was an ugly place.  NYC has none of 
that, just crappy little overpriced apartments, the locals and the commute 
with them.

Seattle is at least much more diverse in the industries around it.

Now, this still assumes the drones doing the work are ever going to get OUT 
of their offices to interact with it.  But at least the FANTASY of being 
able to do it is better in the Valley or the NW.  In NYC you'd be 
hard-pressed to get even the most susceptible of drones to buy that bullshit 
argument...
