Scott Rosenberg (say everything . . .) writes that

We now know at least a little more about what happens when we try to say everything.  For the individual, this impulse begins with a rage for self-revelation and nearly always ends in a crack-up of some kind.  Writing in public requires the drawing of boundaries around parts of one’s life–not so much for propriety but because some sphere of privacy is a prerequisite for any kind of mature personal life.  For the group, the opportunity to say everything has a more benign outcome: a welter of human engagement on an unprecedented scale, resulting in a broad dispersal of ideas and stories and debates.
