  1. Interesting that you’re almost halfway between Austin and Atlanta. Honolulu, I don’t get.

  2. Hmm. Some ambiguous questions: “Need a job?” Um. Now? Or if I had to move? Or would obtaining a good job be important to me? I’m assuming none of the above — just are you looking right now.

    80% Austin
    75% Denver
    70% Seattle
    60% Honolulu
    60% Miami

  3. What’s up with this? Did the Austin Chamber of Commerce create this thing? Every region I tried listed Austin as #1. South…Austin, west…Austin, midwest…Austin, even the northeast…Austin. Is it that good in Austin?

  4. Austin is one of the best cities in the US, at least in my opinion.

  5. Quiz’d again
    Yeah, this is pretty much right, although the high ranking of Philly was a bit of a surprise, since Scott and I thought it was kind of a cesspool when we visited for APSA in 2003: American Cities That Best…

  6. Somehow I got Atlanta…

  7. Pretty worthless.

    The questions don’t cover many important areas (live sports fan? need flights everywhere? cost of living (besides taxes)? average pay?)

    Las Vegas came as #1. OK, I can probably accept that.

    Seattle came as #2. No way. I’ve been there.

    Honolulu was #3. Yes, it would be nice, but there’s no way I can afford it.

    The ever-present Austin was #4. Never been there, so no idea.

    Then came … Atlanta? All right, the only parts I’ve seen were from I-75 at 55 MPH, but I didn’t care for it. Besides, I picked “West” and Atlanta ain’t west.

  8. I do think there are some flaws in their system. We had 4 out of five cities in common, but I too picked west and ended up with Atlanta as #2?!?

    My results:
    60% Austin
    55% Atlanta
    55% Denver
    55% Las Vegas
    50% Chicago

    I feel certain they had a VERY small list of possible cities.
