    There is no scientific way to know what people want. Asking them is only slightly useful.

    Like Steve Jobs said, it's not the customer's job to know what he wants.

    Asking the question hoping for bits of enlightenment. Sometimes you hear something and it strikes you as true.

    The popularity of Patrick.net as a real estate blog was kind of surprising. It was probably because it hit some emotional nerve like you say. Maybe it's possible to do that with people frustrated by management bullshit.

    ok, the way categories relate to each other is via hashtags.

    every new thread can have a hashtag, like #ruby

    then it's a pretty simple matter to find, say, companies that use ruby by doing a search for ruby, and then refining the search to just be companies.
