Camera Phones, Moblogging Continued, and Technology to Change the World
Here are more interesting links related to camera phones, moblogging, and related technology following my post Tuesday, Mobile Phones, Moblogs, and Technology:
- Adam Greenfield is credited with coining the term “moblogging” last November, just over 6 months ago, noting HipTop Nation as an example: “the future-becoming-present in real time: this is what happens when you fuse digital cameras and text-entry functionality with a way to publish it to the Web, for better and worse”.
- Satoshi Nakajima, CEO for UIEvolution Inc. has provided the rest of us with a terrific overview history with corresponding links about camera phones in his Tuesday weblog post, Brief history of Camera Phones.
- Joi Ito’s Moblogging, Blogmapping and Moblogmapping related resources has some interesting information and links there related to moblogging—technology, how to moblog, links to scripts, managing uploaded photos, a chronology of articles, upcoming conferences, and more.
- A History of Moblogging is a resource at moblogging.org that links to first occurrences of moblogging with various technology and approaches.
Speaking of technology, 10 Emerging Technologies That Will Change the World by Herb Brody is an intriguing article from the February issue of MIT Enterprise Technology Review. Brody discusses how our lives will change from wireless sensor networks, injectable tissue engineering, nano solar cells, mechatronics, grid computing, molecular imaging, nanoimprint lithography, software assurance (error free software?!), glycomics, and quantum cryptography. You’ll need a subscription to access the above link, but it’s also reprinted with permission elsewhere and in MSWord format. This is the latest in a series of technology predictions by MIT, and reviewing past years' predictions and opinions about them is rather interesting, too.
