I make things on the web, mobile and in the actual world.

I've done lots of bits and bobs over the years, and right now I'm mostly working on this.

I enjoy speaking about things I like, most recently this. You can email me if you'd like, and I'm on twitter.

Jon Bentley "I decided to delight viewers of the ever popular MOblog with my report." Awww.

one TV presenter using Moblog and an N95 to cover an event, whilst another uses professional equipment. Result? Moblog WIN!

Just the Moblog bit of the clip attached, I edited the full 12 minute segment out of the episode and stuck it on Vimeo if anyone fancies a Look:

Journalism 'face-off'

The thing about TV (imo) is that for web stuff unless there's an actual call to action is totally ineffective.

dear lordy. So, thing is, where is this amazing piece of citizen journalism? I done missed that. Hopefully it might reset my brain after the mindblowing news that a professional videocamera takes better pictures than whatever they shoehorn into a phone. I mean who knew?

They really didnt get the whole moblog thing in that sense, as soon as they'd posted it and everything they deleted it. The Gadget Show moblog is basically emptied after each time they use it...

I don't really like the word "blog" one bit, but I don't think my opinion will get very far.

Love the delivery. MOE BLOG!
