I’ve transformed his tweets into an Excel workbook, translated odds into probabilities and sorted the table from highest (Austin and Atlanta are tied for first). A (much) longer article is forthcoming at New Geography. Stay tuned for a link.  To download the workbook, click here.  BEFORE YOU MAKE ANY CHANGES, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS AND FOLLOW THEM CAREFULLY.  If you make improvements to the worksheets I’d appreciate it if you’d e-mail me a copy.
