Seemingly defying the laws of probability, my blog seems to attract a disproportional percentage of young and extremely intelligent commenters (assuming their blogger profiles are up to date).

1) Irina - 20 years old
2) Chana - 17 years old
3) Tobie - 19 years old
4) Mike - 1715 years old
5) Ezzie - 22 years old (borderline :) )

Is there something about this blog which attracts this particular stratum of the blogosphere? Or is it that the older bloggers are being shy and not commenting?

A) We have more time on our hands.

B) There are far more bloggers in our demographic.

C) It's one of those weird things about blogging: Surprisingly, more of my readers are older than I'd have thought.

Probably a bit of all of those...

LOL, I think that definitely says more about you than about our interests! ; )

well, I comment sometimes.

I think it may be your sweet idealistic demeanor which attracts the youth

Aw, shucks. Spinoza - you're making me blush.

Also, you haven't revealed your age. For all I know you maybe 17 as well :)

Actually I'm only 15 years old.

Also I think you're underestimating the correlation of age with technology knowledge. For example my parents have a hard time with e-mail. I'd say that everyone under 25 can use the internet and afterwards you have a knowledge half-life of 15 years so 1/2 of those 40 can use the internet and so on.

Let's just say that I'm older than 17 :)
