I would put much more value in substance as opposed to, uh, 'hype'.

Like bloggers, TIOBE wants to capture your attention so that you
recall 'TIOBE' each time you want to compare the popularity of
languages. Their list is useful to a certain extent, but let's not
take it too seriously...

What are they looking for? Seeing the other posts discussing
ActionScript, Groovy, Factor, D, it's clear their real interest is...


And I guess they want to be the One True Oracle to anoint new
languages that have cute, uh, 'branding'.

Heh. It's a hoot. :-) I apologize for the cynicism. ;-)
