This is especially important for pilot's in the stage of their careers when their logbooks will face certain scrutiny ie: Interviews, additional ratings, etc.
Absolutely, I'm a huge advocate of keeping a traditional logbook just to make it easy with potential employers and examiners. But legally that's not required, and nothing in your logbook has any legal bearing until YOU make a positive representation that the logged time is to be applied to an FAA requirement (usually by signing an 8710).

This is different from say a trucker's logbook, which he has to carry with him, present when asked, and all entries must be correct. Student pilot solo is the only time this applies to pilots.

The FAA can ask you to prove currency if they have doubts, but they can't violate you if it's not in your logbook. As long as you logged your currency on a napkin that's wadded up in the glovebox of your car, you're good.

"Each person must document and record the following time in a manner acceptable to the Administrator:"

The question is, what's "acceptable" or rather what is unacceptable?
