Other things to notice:
the BBC is more important than CNN
/. is more important than the Whitehouse
bobby is more important than macromedia

Yahoo is #1.  Probably because of all the porn sites with the text "If you are under the age of 18, please leave now." and "leave" linking back to yahoo.

Additional observations:

* Symantec is more important than McAfee

* MIT is more important than Stanford is more than important than Havard is more important than Yale

* PHP > Python > Perl

* Energy > Nature :-)
