Too cool for your network
One of those peculiar little woes of the new media researcher was exemplified at lunch today. My colleague Erling, who is interested in photography, has a really cool new cellphone and a photoblog on some undisclosed location. The problem is that with a cellphone as cool as his, he doesn't have many recipients for his sophisticated messages. Today, at lunch, he sent me a multimediamessage - a picture of myself. Because, you know, my new not-quite-that-cool phone can receive pictures from his! Finally, a recipient, and he can even claim sharing pictures with me is vital to his research.
