From Bernaisesource, a local blog:
I live in Atlanta. Forbes Magazine recently named it the most wired city in the country for the second year in a row. That’s a notable distinction, but when it comes to the next wave of the Internet, nobody would say Atlanta is the leading trendsetter. There are of course exceptions. Atlanta has hosted Podcamps, Barcamps, and a Startup Weekend.But many of the largest companies have yet to significantly embrace social media and only a handful of social media start-ups have achieved significant success.
The question is why?
It is not a matter of brainpower. Atlanta is the home of Georgia Tech and Emory. It is also the headquarters for social media companies like ViTrue, Meetsee, Kaneva, and Esgut, which is one the biggest FaceBook app developers.
