Mobile Journalism in the headlines

Its been a very busy month for mobile journalism, with the incredible inclement weather creating a “perfect storm” to test the capabilities of mojo in the field. I was interviewed by Broadcast Now as part of a comprehensive feature on mobile news-gathering which also included pioneers like Nick Garnett from BBC and SKY News with their broad adoption of live streaming via mobile.

Also I was invited to write articles for both the European Broadcasting Unions Technology magazine Tech-i (published quarterly) and Dan Chung, editor of Newsshooter.com also asked me to write a guest post on the topic. The amount of discussion and feedback about MoJo has been phenomenal and it really is great to see so many journalists embracing the new technology and pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved. Here are links to the pieces:

    Hello Glen

    Hows it going? Looks like you’ve been busy🙂.

    So I spent a week recording 5min countdown interviews ala BBC on my 5s and edited them on my ipad mini before polishing on my mac and posting. Basic irig mic.

    A total of 8 short interview pieces and 7 podcasts were produced in 7days. Be interested to see what you make of it…

    Cheers.
