Well, here's the comment from a Dutchy then :)

In fact, there are some points which have to do with it.
A) The Dutch are very active on the internet, if you look at the 
computer-per-person statistics, we're also in the top 5 (3 maybe :-)

B) My fellow citizens are mostly very well educated, there's a 
tremendous amount of students around here which are very active on 
everything you can think of if computer related.

and finally..

C) The Dutch language is not seen around much, and there's actually 
one good "Slashdot" like site around here, called Tweakers.net which 
is written in Dutch.
Almost everybody who remotely has some interest in the computer world 
knows that page, or at least knows at least 5 people who actively use 
it. (Which automatically leads to assimilation of course :-)
Featuring the Dutch Power Cows on their main page daily (with stats 
etc.) and of course, the DPC being first place is a good motivation 
to join.. everybody wants to be a winner 'eh ;-)

Greets,
