The Secrets in the telling

Hopefully many of you already know about the fabulous blog that is PostSecret.com. In their own words, they are “an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard.” If you haven’t checked it out by now, you’re really missing out.
For most of you though, hopefully the blog isn’t really news. What I HAVE been obsessed with pretty much all week though, is the new Whisper App for my phone! You can learn more here, but basically its a mobile, on-demand PostSecret. I’m quite skeptical of the actual level of ‘secrecy’ behind an app versus hard-copy mailed in, and we know a-la-Snowden that well, the government, hackers, and other individuals can get pretty much anything they want from us. Thus, disclosing your deepest-darkest secrets on an app may not be the best way to remain entirely anonymous, but hey, to each his own. Also, this fact may make the actual blog stick around, rather than getting driven out by the move to mobile (I mean, I’m still checking Sunday Secrets with or without an app!). Not to mention, I’m pretty sure founder Frank may receive much more artistically assembles secrets, as there is only so much you can do digitally.
Anyway, check the app out and let me know what you think!
