Blogging Frankenstein

Out of the blue, a real understanding of the horror of Frankenstein in context of blogosphere struck me this morning.

Imagine a hideous monster created out of pieces of your friends and family, eyes of your wife, hands of your son, or a patch of skin from your daughter.  The common practice of misquoting, rephrasing, or taking words out of context and reapplying in the blogosphere reminded me of Frankenstein.  I know that most of it is done unintentionally and it's just human nature at work, but the sharp image I got jolted me.

Just a food for thought although I doubt others will be able to digest this any better than I can.
