"Noah Grey, blogger-in-residence at NoahGrey.com, is an agoraphobic, manic-depressive living at home who hasn’t had a face-to-face friend in more than four years. Obviously, he is not the prototypical blogger, but he is a good example of how an otherwise reclusive character can garner blog fame. […] The end result of this odd compilation of self-contained celebrities is a Web community that I find both alienating and intriguing. As someone admittedly outside of loop, I browse through blogdom as dazed and confused as an octogenarian watching Total Request Live without the calming blandness of Carson Daly for moral support. Spend a few hours in this world and some uncomfortable truths begin to float to the surface. “These people are hip, you’re not. These people are ‘plugged in,’ you’re not.” Suddenly, you want to figure out when and how you fell so desperately behind the cool curve, so you click and click and click. Now they own you."

— Excerpt from an old TechTV article written in 2000 I found through my site logs today and don’t remember having read before.  Don’t worry, man, I’m sure this whole wacky online thing is just a fad, and soon we’ll all go back to sticking our faces into books.

Schizophrenia Is Actually Eight Distinct Genetic Disorders:

New research published in the American Journal of Psychiatry suggests that schizophrenia is not a single disease, but rather a group of eight genetically distinct disorders, each of them with its own set of symptoms. The finding could result in improved diagnosis and treatment, while also shedding light on how genes work together to cause complex disorders.
Schizophrenia is classified as a psychotic disorder, one characterized by an inability to discern what is real and not real, to think clearly, have normal emotional responses, and act normally in social situations. As Elyn Saks told us last year, “it’s a waking nightmare, where you have all the bizarre images, the terrible things happening, and the utter terror — only with a nightmare you open your eyes and it goes away. No such luck with a psychotic episode.”
Scientists aren’t entirely sure what causes it, nor does it manifest identically in all people who have it (leading to the broader diagnosis of being on the ‘schizophrenia spectrum’). But links have been made to genetics, social factors (including early development), and neurobiology. The heritability link looks to be particularly promising, however; about 80% of the risk for schizophrenia is genetic. Yet scientists have struggled to identify which genes are responsible for the condition.
But a novel approach to analyzing genetic influences on more than 4,000 people with schizophrenia has finally allowed researchers to identify distinct gene clusters that contribute to eight different classes of schizophrenia.

"The similarity between Van Gogh, Haiku poetry, and good photography is the concern for mortality. That things are very fleeting, that there are people who are more sensitive to death than others. The threat of time is of great concern to them. And the camera is a very appropriate instrument for many."
