Definitly not as far as African-Americans are concerned...

The next San Francisco, maybe. I've always thought Austin had a similar vibe, albeit on a smaller scale.

I love when people compare Austin to San Francisco and Berkeley.

Maybe the next Portland or Denver.

Don't think so.

Austin is a lot more "Texan" than most people realize (or Austinites care to admit). People complain about the sprawl and strip-malls of Houston and Dallas, but Austin is just as bad.

No. It may become a texas version of Denver, whatever that is. Austin, fortunately will not become Atlanta. Charlotte might. San Francisco is most similar to Boston, nothing land-locked will ever be similar.

Right...fortunately...

If Austin could, it would be like Atlanta in a heartbeat. It can't - so it won't.
