Here's a nice survey of geographic location of domain name ownership. I was surprised to see that people in Los Angeles own more domains than San Francisco, but I assume the researcher didn't lump all the Silicon Valley cities together to get that number. I'm sure a "Bay Area" grouping would be number one. Of the .com, .org, and .net addresses, the US still leads the world with 2/3 of all addresses in that domainspace, so I guess the web will continue to be American-centric for some time.

CMSA in the domain name ownership overview stands for Consolidated Metropolitan Statistical Area. And this Bureau of Economic Analysis listing of CMSAs seems to indicate the SF/Oakland CMSA consists of Oakland, SF, San Jose, Santa Cruz, Santa Rose and Vallejo-Fairfield-Napa.
