I am writing this blog post from the discomfort of a hot train carriage en route from Grantham to Manchester. Why do you need to know that? The answer is quite simply that you don’t. My point is that it is now possible to blog or upload content, any time, any place, anywhere.
There is no air conditioning in my carriage but I do have a laptop with me and Internet access, although it is courtesy of a 3G mobile stick rather than having been thoughfully provided by the train operator. Although to be fair many train operators now offer wifi (usually the same ones that manage to provide aircon).
We are increasingly moving to a point where web access is an expected utility rather than a welcome exception. The iPhone even has a dedicated WordPress application that lets you blog directly from your phone with considerable ease, making live blogging easier than ever. The carriage isn’t getting any cooler and I’m still an hour and a half from my stop. I wonder what’s happening on twitter?
