Mobile Bloggin

You may have seen my son's blog, where he documented his experience while he was in Katrina stricken Waveland, Mississippi.

His blog was created entirely from his cell phone using go@blogger.

Recently my wife did the same thing on her trip to Hawaii.

It's a simple and great way to get others involved in your trip while it happens.

Flat World...Updated and Expanded

Thanks to Steve Ruble who pointed me to the updated and expanded version of Thomas Friedman's "The World is Flat".

If you didn't read the first version now's a great time to pick it up.

Steve's sneak peak says Tom included a new flattener..."Uploading"...sounds like he stayed with 10 flatteners, I wonder what flattener "Uploading" replaced?

Any more reviews of the updated version?
