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?

Earlier this week I took on two new MSc students for my new project on the application of mobile blogging. Mobloggs have been used extensively in the journalism field for sometime. The challenge for this project is to look for applications in other fields and in particular engineering.
Heres a bit from the project brief:
This project will addresses the question whether tools used for contributing to moblogs (i.e. mobile web blogs) can be used professionally within the engineering and/or the business environment. The project will include interviews and case studies and evaluating existing moblogging technology and practices.
About one third of the UK population already owns a mobile device with image capturing capabilities. There is also moblogging software available, while still more than a bit quirky, giving image capture and annotating capabilities. Therefore, the possibilities for incorporating a moblog within engineering businesses as a tool to monitor and control resources or status is to the greatest part limited by the organisation’s own resources and interest.
With Mobile phone penetration in the UK has remained steady at around 70 percent in a population of approximately 60 million people, the user-base is already there – and waiting for things to happen.
• Definition of requirements
• Literature review
