What does this tell us?
My guess is that given the subject matter (e.g social networking) the IHT's readers are just too old to care. Or that techies prefer to post on dedicated techie sites.
Here are some examples of what I am talking about:
- Do you think the removal of restrictions on electronic equipment sales is a sign of more change to come in Cuba? (1 comment)
- Mobile war over social networking (says there are 3 comments but the link doesn't work)
- How should bloggers deal with anonymous posts that amount to personal attacks? (3 comments)
- Despite a slowdown in growth, interest in the use of search engines as marketing tools is unabated. Are you likely to click on a paid link before looking for an unpaid one? (1 comment)
- A german court ruled that surveillance of personal computers would be allowed only for exceptional cases. Should the authorities be allowed to use virus-like software to spy on suspects' computers? (5 comments)
- Toshiba, champion of the HD DVD standard, has lost the battle to Sony and its Blu-ray format as the successor to DVD. Now that one standard has prevailed, do you plan to trade in your DVDs for Blu-Ray discs?

In fact, of the 30 discussion topics put out there by www.iht.com the technology ones account for all but one of the 7 lowest response topics.
Any thoughts as to why this is; any thoughts as to why the techies at www.iht.com won't get the hint that whether we are going to trade in our DVDs for Blu-Ray discs hardly makes gripping discussion?
