Internet psychology in action. 'Blogging schizophrenia' happens when a blogger neatly posts different aspects of their psyche in different places on the internet. This action is based on the subconscious fear that if the two distinct acpects of one's self were placed together on the same page, some kind of paradox (real or imagined) would be observed by one's readership, and that the overall credibility of the writer might be in danger of being damaged. A case study ("Patchman") involving these two forums (1 and 2) is currently in progress, with research results to be released in the International Lacanian Laptop Journal.
