The BBC starts an experiment in networked journalism using students equipped with Nokia phones (aka news gathering devices) hooked up with GPS to get location (aka hyperlocal) information. Sounds a bit like the Farcast project described here. I do like the idea of a new device that can record and send along and publish geographically tagged photos, video, text, and audio. The phones we have — like my beloved Treo — are almost there, but they need to enable easier text input and easy editing of multimedia without any publishing hassles on the other end.
