The Rise of the Microcelebrities

Danny O'Brien's Oblomovka: "It feels, stuck here, so close to the machinery of the Net, that there's a growing middle-class of fame - a whole world of people who aren't really famous, but could spend their days only talking to people who think they're fucking fantastic (or horrifyingly notorious)."

Great blog entry; I've noticed the rise of these 'microcelebrities' the more I've been in the blog world.
