As for the Austin economy, I am an angel.co user but not a twitter user, so I didn't see any feedback on the four-way comparison from this past winter that you (DPatel) post excerpt screenshots from, above (hackernoon takes blog comments via twitter).
Angel.co is specifically for hiring "talent" interested in business models built to scale hyperfast or die trying, which involves creating a lot more PR than technology jobs do in general, just like Evel Knievel could get a lot more press than your cousin's motorcycle daytrip to Lake Lavon did. Is the buzz about something productive?
Well if any investor compares it to something productive with the same level of risk in the time horizon they're prepared to accept, and finds that they can get superior returns by being in something unproductive that has more momentum, then they don't even have to answer the question.

The website has a neat geographic nesting system that allows parent-child searches, except that it often returns errors, and allows the option of listing multiple hiring locations (Richardson AND Garland AND Plano) for a single vacancy so that the totals don't add up to a reliable indicator of what's based in a place.
4657 / 893 Austin https://angel.co/austin
4634 / 826 Travis County https://angel.co/travis-county-1
Even though they have Travis County contain Austin and eight other places.
Likewise the total Harris County job postings are a smaller number than Houston by itself; Euless may have 40 phantom jobs while listing 6 companies none of which are digital.
Nonetheless, with those caveats, plus the big one (that a lot of businesses create profiles to look for talent here without realizing they're not even techy enough to be who the talent is looking for), we can say that the available Angel List jobs right now are distributed this way:
1617 Texas (100%)
893 Austin city limits (55%)
465 DFW (29%)
192 Houston (12%)
67 rest of the state (4%)
