This is kinda OT, but I can't help it. I'm feeling so lonely. I just gotta reach out to you all.
I came across the article exerpted below, and thought that it would be a diversion from the lack of action in the RE biz.
Calgary author says bloggers a lonely bunch unlikely to change the world - linkPoor VHB, making up all that make-believe data because he's lonely.
CALGARY (CP) - Bloggers are living in a world where emotions may be real but everything else is make-believe... But Michael Keren, who has written "Blogosphere: The New Political Arena," suggests individuals who bare their souls in blogs are isolated and lonely, living in a virtual reality instead of forming real relationships or helping to change the world. "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," the author says.
Poor pope, kicked out of seminary school, and now believes that he has a billion-odd odd-balls that worship him. That's not quixotic, that's crazy!
And poor Rob Chipman. Sitting in his mother's basement, believing that he is a real estate agent. What's more sad, he believes that he is really Rob Chipman.
And uncertain buyer, uncertain that he even exists perhaps. It's ok uncertain, I am creating reality, and you do exist - just another of my make believe friends? I dunno, ask mohican (I made him up too).
What is really ironic, is that this guy wrote a whole book about how lonely people writing blogs are. How quixotic...
Gotta go and check my stats - to see how many people like me. Later!
