During the Baseball Winter Meetings in Orlando, I decided to test where mobile technology and sports reporting are intersecting.
BizofBaseball.com sits on the Joomla open source platform, and with it, Apple's Safari and Joomla's PHP platform don't exactly make happy. Still, reporting from the iPhone through Joomla is possible.
Toggling over to Joomla's HTML editor allowed me to write in iPhone's Notepad and code on Joomla. The results was this post: Adrian Gonzalez and MLB's Luxury Tax Loophole, an article written from an iPhone at the lobby of The Dolphin at the Winter Meetings.
The point is, with the likes of Wordpress and other Internet platforms creating mobile apps to tap into mobile platforms, being able to report beyond 140 characters on Twitter is going to make blogging/internet mobile devices a viable platform. That will allow more context over just "blasting" information through the likes of Twitter.
By the way.., this post comes via iPhone. Hang tight... True reporting via mobile devices is now here. It's just a matter of reporters having tools to allow them to do so efficiently.
