Yes, car-sharing service Zipcar says that sleepy Atlanta is the most innovative city in the country, leading Pittsburgh, Boston, Washington, D.C., and Denver.
According to the company's inaugural "Future Metropolis Index" study, Atlanta snagged the top spot because of its high number of colleges and universities and "hot spots" per 100,000 residents. The city's amount of greenspace and arts-related jobs helped us tie with Albuquerque for the fifth spot on a list of "creative" and "vibrant" cities. And we cracked the top five for "efficiency," which apparently ranked cities based on transit ridership.
Errr, I dunno. I'm a little perplexed by this. If you're going to measure something as fuzzy as innovation, why not include patents? And shouldn't sustainability — one measure on which Atlanta appropriately scored low — look at such stats as transit funding?
Regardless, we are Atlanta, the most innovative city in the world! Eat our unsynchronized traffic lights, Pittsburgh!
yeah, because Grant Park is miles away and isn't a park
