Anyone with a website who is interested in how that website is read should be interested in log analysis. There's a reason most blog software has referrer tracking built in, and many have other kinds of tracking as well. Log analysis provides everything the blog software can do, but is more general to other websites. So I really don't think it's a lack of interest by technical people.
Maybe I'll write a list of features I think should exist, but don't, or don't work as well as they should.
