BLOGGERS

Professor Michael Karen or the University of Calgary has just written a book alleging that bloggers are lonely, isolated, rebellious and live in a make believe world:”In the blogosphere, the death of an ancient cat is on the same emotionl level as an earthquake in Pakistan.”

          Not so fast say the bloggers:  “Bloggers love company;  we are incurable social creatures wrapped in a pose of Internet misanthropy.  Blogging is all about intensive engagement to hometown politics and world affairs alike.  Blogging is like travelling the country, chatting with others living in small towns.  Because we do this from out basement offices doesn’t mean we’re lonely.”  What’s this all about anyway?

    I was going to write a book about a Professor who was lonely, isolated and rebellious and had nothing else to do but write a book, but I didn’t have enough time, after spending so much time on the computer, reading articles, news events, youtube, peekvid. I guess that was the point, wasn’t it? It is unfortunate that our time is limited.

    There are a lot of blog sites out there which do seem to be a platform for overpersonal trivia. Fortunately this isn’t one of them.
