Late response but...thanks Jeff!

Re: Matthew Ingram/Woebot's Top 100 Records Ever

Since it influences your formula, Matthew Ingram seems to be from the US.

Re: Matthew Ingram/Woebot's Top 100 Records Ever

Jeff, it feels like your post was a response to the work I just did on my computer...where I just wrote down that he's from the UK (since you said he's a Wire contributor). But of course he could still be an American. Thanks for letting me know.

Re: Matthew Ingram/Woebot's Top 100 Records Ever

I believe he is from the UK!
