DC Epicenter of High Tech

Here's a revealing piece on job sector concentrations from NewGeography (http://feeds2.feedburner.com/Newgeography). According to this map and the underlying data, Virginia and Maryland lead the nation in concentration of highly technical, scientific and professional jobs. I'm sure good candidates for cause would be defense contractors and federal government civil workers. A good guess would have been Massachusetts but it looks like it's just too far outside the Pentagon's buffer zone.
