Probably millions of secret service employees worldwide can read my journal (if I sync it via a cloud service). It’s not a private journal anymore, it’s a blog. Where can I find a really private place for my thoughts these days? Go back to paper, so malicious agents have to at least break in to read it?
I keep my journal in the only private place left — my head. The reason I keep a journal is not to read it again. I keep it because it helps me reflect on the day. There’s no need to write it down for it to have that effect.
