WARNING: I think there's something wrong with this data. I'll leave it here as it is a few days until I check.

"Methodology": Get list of articles from DBLP, scrap Scholar for number of citations, remove the top 10 and the bottom 10 when ordered by citations (this removes the most significant errors of the preceding phases at the cost of skewing the data a bit; but the data is already skewed because the sources of information are not quite reliable), and then compute the average and the median.
When the average is a lot above the median, that means that there are a few papers that people really remember and keep citing, and lots of others that get forgotten. Or it means something else. You pick.
