::protocol7.2.0.beta2:: - Dave wrote yesterday about David Davies who blogs from his mobile using Radio. So I wrote a 20 line script that allows me to do the same, but without Radio... using the Blogger APIs... Simple enough.
Ha! You can say that now sir. Just as someone would say, crossing the Antarctic these days is 'simple enough.'
Internet Suffix for Individuals Starts - In addition, ``.museum'' began operating in November on a provisional basis, meaning assigned names may still change, and ``.coop'' for business cooperatives became active Jan. 9. A few thousand names have been requested under each. Debuting later this year are ``.aero'' for aviation and ``.pro'' for professionals
Now I fancy a dot pro, but dot name, or dot me dot uk -- nah!
Back to terra firma and to a more conventional style of blogging. What has the last 36 hours shown us? Well, for me, it's taken the blog beyond the conventional commentary and narrative and turned it into something more experiential. Sure, with mobile blogging and SMS you're limited in character count so brevity is more important that verbosity (unless you're lucky to have a 3rd gen phone like Al), but it's more immediate, in fact it *is* immediate. It doesn't matter where you are or what you're doing, within reason, you can capture the moment. A kind of snapshot in text. For sure if I'd have waited until I got home to tell you about my trip it would have been a lot less personal.
This is definitely going to be totally irrelevant for the majority of people but I think that from now on we're no longer constrained to blog the world post hoc. We can be there, right in the moment, and tell it as it happens! From: [David Davies' Radio Weblog]
What a hero, flying in a propeller driven plane, to heroically from where no man's blogged before; blogging from thousands of feet in the air. David Davies, I've always thought you'd make a noble pioneer, standing chin jutting near the prop, white scarf blowing in the wind, tap-tappety-tap on your trusty Nokie six inches in front of your face. Knowing that you will always get your message through. Our brave, handsome champion. We love you David Davies! You are (in your best Father Ted impression:-) going to make the fecken difference between wining and losing, between living and dying.
Witness the maiden mission gallantly, holding forth, with not a quiver of fear, over the roar of the crowd to tell us: "15:59 via SMS: Half time, still 1 - 0 to the visitors. Do people pay to watch this every week! Still, Ginola's playing, lovely hair!"If you read the Aston Villa blogs, you'd understand, the immense significance of these immortal words for mankind, Neil Armstrong, eat your heart out!
What will he do next? Right at the moment, blogging through adversity and tempests, the world's most intrepid blogger!I know David Davies quite well, you gotta look into his eyes, Now! I think! You are going to see a guy who'll go that inch for you. You are going to see a guy, who'll sacrifice himself to blog from anywhere!
