One small step for man…

This is only the very beginning, pleaded Reuters correspondent Matt Cowan when he showed his first experiences with the Nokia N95 as a video/audio/upload tool for the next generation of web journalists.

David Dunkley Gyimah of Viewmagazine.TV filmed part of the discussion about the Mobile Journalism Toolkit, which you can see for yourself. He has a hand held camera (nice, nifty HD thingie, I won’t ask my boss for that one).

Seen it? Now give your opinion, also based on Paul’s comment in Tuesday’s post on this topic. He really looks ahead, and almost makes me admit I am wrong. Almost, of course.
