Mobile blogging: you saw it here first

On March 1st 2001 I posted my first public message to my weblog using a mobile phone. A week later I blogged my way through a football match while in the crowd, again using my phone. Hey, I even managed to blog from inside a plane, though only after the seat-belt lights had come on of course. This technology was very simple and has been available to users for a couple of years. In fact emailing to a weblog predates that by another half year. Back in September 2000 a bunch of people collaborated to create this weblog page.

Now I read that the BBC predicts “People will soon be able to publish their own website via their phones as blogging goes mobile.” That's so old hat I'm actually using my mobile to make phone calls now. Realtime voice exchange. It's the future. You saw it here first.
