Got Blog?: You Might Be Depressed

Do you blog? If you weren't depressed or outraged before, Professor Michael Keren's assertion that bloggers are lonely, isolated, and withdrawn might get your blood pumping. According to the author of Blogosphere: The New Political Arena,
"Bloggers think of themselves as rebels against mainstream society, but that rebellion is mostly confined to cyberspace, which makes blogging as melancholic and illusionary as Don Quixote tilting at windmills," Keren says in a statement.
From what I've seen, blogging is all about communication. Bloggers want to be heard, and through comments, emails, and conferences, can connect to more people than ever before.
