The world as a whole is incredibly mundane, and this proves it.

Yeah. I was hoping for some illustration of wildly new and different trends, undercurrents which gave lie to some of the popular culture myths, something which showed that the internet was giving rise to a more varied and personal society.

Nope. Mainstream, all the way down.

Of COURSE the top searches will all be mainstream. That's the DEFINITION of mainstream. You'd have to do a MUCH more thorough analysis than top-tens and top-twenties to get the undercurrents.

Or did you think that web users were supposed to be more hip than the average human? I beg to differ; most surfers are AOLamers. That's where you're getting those statistics from.

I like the lycos 50 and their weekly reports on what's hot and what's not.

I've put a little tracking code into Justin's Journal that keeps a log of the URL of the link followed to get to that site. I've been getting at least one visit per day, and usually three or more, looking for Annika Irmler, the 12 year old school german school girl with the world's longest tongue.
