Moblile Blog definitions, part 1 of a series of 342,901

Writing about web page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moblog

The obvious place to start??

_“Moblog is a blend of the words mobile and weblog. A mobile weblog, or Moblog, consists of content posted to the Internet from a mobile or portable device, such as a cellular phone or PDA. Moblogs generally involve technology which allows publishing from a mobile device.

Much of the earliest development of Moblogs occurred in Japan, among the first countries in the world where camera phones (portable phones with built-in cameras) were widely commercially available.”_

What about the business, the limitations, security issues, barriers etc?

  1. Thanks Mark, I have check this already, but I think the mobile system in Japan are quite different from other countries. They use i-mode, one of quite difference network apart from GSM/CDMA, it is called Phs. One of my friend live in Tokyo for several years, I don’t know if it is useful, but this is want I want to say. Cheers!

    The advance of technology has been essential to the very idea of mobile blogging.

    But does the actual technology used matter?

    If I take a photo with a phone or a digital camera then I can post it using 3G, GPRS, WiFi hotspot, bluetooth, cable or memory stick. Posting a text entry just needs web access via a browser and some way of entering characters.

    For more extreme ways to post using satalite phones and uploading from SMS see Mark’s links to his expedition sites.
