Posting by phone

Paul 2006-11-13

I've been hacking away at Movable Type, the publishing platform we're using to manage our blog, and added the capability to post our entries by email.

We're carrying an HTC TyTN Windows Mobile phone / PDA with us, and using it to type up our entries in its email application. We send these emails via either the mobile phone network or WiFi network to the blog server and get converted into entries.

Any photos we want in the entry are simply included as attachments to the email. The server stores them, generates thumbnails and web-sized versions and stores them, ready for your enjoyment.

This has been the first post using this system from mobile phone. Finally, mobile blogging! moblogging!

Hey Paul, nice work on the mobile blogging! Quite impressive. Make sure that you keep your orange juice (or coffee) a safe distance from your gadgets so we can enjoy your postings from Ecuador. ;)
