Atlanta tops America’s Nerdiest City poll

If you hadn’t already guessed, my fellow Movoto bloggers are all pretty nerdtastic. So, naturally, when we recently got to talking about what some of the best cities in the U.S. are for various types of people—see our recent look at the top towns for gamers—the idea of determining where nerds (aka “my people”) would most feel at home came up.

After coming up with our criteria and crunching the numbers, it was Atlanta—also Movoto’s top gamer city—that took the crown.

Portland, Ore. is Robin to Atlanta’s Batman. Click the link for more details, including the criteria used to determine nerdiness.

(Thanks to my hot nerd wife Bonnie for giving me the heads up on this.)

    Been to Atlanta several times since 1992. The only nerdery I ever encountered was at the trade shows I attended.
