According to the New York Times (as excerpted by the Instapundit):
Hey, guess what! My weight's been going up over the last year. It must be all this blogging I'm doing.
A growing work force of home-office laborers and entrepreneurs, armed with computers and smartphones and wired to the hilt, are toiling under great physical and emotional stress created by the around-the-clock Internet economy that demands a constant stream of news and comment. . . .
Two weeks ago in North Lauderdale, Fla., funeral services were held for Russell Shaw, a prolific blogger on technology subjects who died at 60 of a heart attack. In December, another tech blogger, Marc Orchant, died at 50 of a massive coronary. A third, Om Malik, 41, survived a heart attack in December.
Other bloggers complain of weight loss or gain, sleep disorders, exhaustion and other maladies born of the nonstop strain of producing for a news and information cycle that is as always-on as the Internet.
Well, consider the fact that my wife fed me breaded roasted chicken with mashed potatoes and white gravy tonight, I'd better sign off here before I give myself a coronary. I'll try to write something a little more meaty (bad pun; I know) in the next day or so, after I've had a salad to boost my constitution.
