Actually, though, I had a thought yesterday that I forgot to mention and which I will do here and now. As I had been saying, I have reading about John Adams, and he kept a constant diary. Sometimes of esoteric thoughts, sometimes just scribbles of what he saw and did that day. They seemed to me to be much like blogging, but a great deal more private. If Adams were alive today, would he blog? Would he write, for anyone who wanted to see, all of his thoughts and ideas that he did on those tiny little notebooks? And is anyone who writes these kinds of journals--be they electronic of paper--self-absorbed or is he or she really just observant?
There is this whole movement in art of journaling--taking books and altering them, or making your own journal of art. I wonder what Adam's art journals, if had made them, would be like?
