Hardly surprising in the current climate, Hitwise today confirmed that in the last 12 months there have been 44% more searches for the term "house price crash", whilst at the same time there's been 20% less searches for "house prices".

Housepricecrash.co.uk has directly increased its' traffic by a similar amount - 43%, but who are these people so interested in the demise of the Great British property price?

Well the largest group of visitors to the site are the affluent "Urban Intelligence" (young professional city dwellers) and "Symbols of Success" (the richest and most financially successful Mosaic group).

The two most significant groups increasing their share in the last year are "Suburban Comfort" and "Happy Families" – as the names suggest, they are both stable ‘middle class’ groups that are well represented on the site.

Although "Urban Intelligence" contains a large proportion of students, mature students and recent grads not just young professionals.

Out of interest, proportions among th egeneral popualtion are roughly:

A - Symbols of Success 10%
B - Happy Families 11%
C - Suburban Comfort 14%
D - Ties of Community 17%
E - Urban Intelligence 7%
F - Welfare Borderline 7%
G - Municipal Dependency 7%
H - Blue Collar Enterprise 10%
I - Twilight Subsistence 4%
J - Grey Perspectives 8%
K - Rural Isolation 6%

A message from the past to Jimmy Wales and Tim Berners-Lee:

...you give your disciples not truth, but only the semblance of truth; they will be hearers of many things and will have learned nothing; they will appear to be omniscient and will generally know nothing; they will be tiresome company, having the show of wisdom without the reality
Plato, The Phaedrus
