Atlanta: Future Metropolis!

Atlanta has ranked extremely high (perhaps higher than expected) in Zipcar's future metropolis study, which "recognizes cities that demonstrate smart urban planning and policy making".  Like all indices, there is some bias here - the categories are those in alignment with Zipcar's mission. However, I think we can agree that innovation, sustainability, vibrancy/creativity, efficiency and livability/optimism are values to strive for in an urban metropolis.

Most noteably for this audience, Atlanta was #1 on innovation due to its high number of wireless hotspots and post-secondary education opportunities (and outweighing low grades on sustainability. measured by bike lanes/paths and hybrid cars, and livability, measured by crime and unemployment.  (I am a little skeptical of Atlanta's high efficiency rating, measured by use of public transportation).
