Blog Addiction
Is is possible to be addicted to blogs? To reading them, to add comments to them, to feverishly keep one's own blog updated with every thought, every second of every day.

It is possible - quite possible - to continuously look at blogs all day. Each blog seems interconnected with others by links to certain postings or linked by way of a blogroll. If that doesn't satisfy, there are blog rings and blog databases - where you can search by type, location or whatever.

Which brings me to an important point: is there a point one gets to when you're incredibly sick of people's opinions? And possibly even sick of your own? In a world where "information overload" is increasingly becoming a reality, is there such thing as "opinion overload"? Is this overload a satisfactory cure for blog addiction?

It would be interesting to here people's opinions on this. I'm not usually this existentialist - possibly something happened to me in my philosophy tute today.

Well, without going into great discourse about the either/or's of existentialism, I guess one can become sick of society in the simplest sense of the term. Opinions being other peoples' outlets to express intelligence, we all add to the 'info overload' seen in everyday life.Would I be adding to your trauma by posting here? We live in a world where each and every day we have no choice as to whether or not we participate in dialogue.

What crazy musings we all have...

Would you like your photo taken with Billy? Simply email me a photo of yourself (leaving enough room for Billy to be inserted). You can make it look like you're hugging him, shaking his hand, whatever. However, what Billy is doing and what he is wearing will ultimately be up to me to decide.
