Xeni Jardin's Moblog
The moblog, blogging from a mobile phone, pictures, text, up to the minute "you are there" experience. Ellis' much desired "Futurephone". Hell, i want one too.
Worse than having a camcorder everywhere which relies on TV for broadcast - this can kill reality-television, when everyone can broadcast this sort of stuff.

Think of all the good it can do, all the damage that individuals can do.

How long until some government tries to interfere with what we can send to each other in the interests of National Security?
