Check it out! Wired News: Now Bloggers Can Hit the Road. This is just cool and totally unexpected that my thoughts ended up in Wired. Rocking!
Peter Rojas from Gizmodo emailed me a few weeks ago about my entry on Kablog, the J2ME based moblogging app. Since Gizmodo is probably my favorite blog on the net, I gave him the full rundown on my thoughts on the app and Moblogging in general. I knew he was writing an article, I just didn't know it was for Wired! Very nice! Thanks Peter!
This is very cool since we were mentioned in the same sentence as NewBay's FoneBlog which got a lot of press yesterday for its presence at 3GSM. I think Peter did a good job by going to real bloggers to talk about moblogging tools - not just because I got mentioned, but just in general. (By the way, Harold reports that NewBay is hiring. Oooh, that's very cool! Maybe I should blow some dust off my resume... it's been what, three months since I changed jobs? I'm getting antsy...)
Anyways, this made my day. I'm hoping Moblogging can live up to its building hype... I don't Moblog much any more, but it's the kernel of an idea which I think is the Right Thing. We'll see how many hits my Moblogger site gets today... maybe I'll need to clean it up some more. (God I hope I put the world "prototype" in big enough letters...)
Later still... I should have known the article was for Wired, Peter told me about it in his first email (I just checked). I guess I just saw "Gizmodo" and didn't think about anything else. I'm such a gadget head.
