I’ve been without broadband Internet at home for about three weeks – I was “between providers”, so to speak.
Must say that, while I was still able to consume some of my daily Internet fix – browsing RSS feeds on my mobile phone -, it was at the same time a sobering experience of how embarrassingly ill adapted the applications on my Nokia N95 are to mobile Web 2.0 participation.
I’ll probably remember this period best as the time when Doc Searls went in and out of hospital and blogged it all. Good health and happiness to you, Doc!
Data speed is not the bottle neck. It’s the lack of mobile client-side participatory software.
With my Nseries device and 3G coverage I could browse and email, but that was about it. No tagging, no digging, no blogging with any level of convenience.
So what I ended up doing was to bookmark the URLs I would have liked to tag, digg or blog and thus collect them in my mobile phone’s browser for future reference.
I hope to catch up blogging some of those bookmarks over the coming days.
