Why I’m Only a Part-Time Mobile Media Analyst November 3, 2006Posted by David Card in Media.
This was going to be a commentary on mis-spent marketing dollars (delivery of on-can promotion for an event that took place six months ago). The speed and efficiency of soda distribution! It’s viral, baby! Hope they didn’t pay for this impression…
But the comedy of errors of me — allegedly a media/tech/consumer analyst — trying to get a photo from phone to blog is a better post: an illustration of how there are still a few missing links in the digital consumer-created media chain. Either that or how I’m a completely clueless, too-old-for-this-kind-of-thing, techno-luddite.
In fact, I’ll spare you the grisly details. Suffice it to say that, in an effort to get a higher resolution image than my Slvr can handle, we went through Nokia-Verizon to Moto-Cingular to Mac (my only bluetooth machine) to blog, and lost about 67% of the quality of the picture. And a few hours.
