And the oth­er trend­ing top­ics are also just what those me­dia pro­fes­sion­als are in­ter­est­ed in, not what the gen­er­al pop­u­la­tion is in­ter­est­ed in. And to il­lus­trate the in­tel­li­gence of those me­dia pro­fes­sion­als: 10 out of 12 "pop­u­lar web com­pa­nies" whine about IE6 while the code of their home­page doesn't even val­i­date:
