Experimenting with Moblogging – Finally, Proud Owner of an iPad

Gran Canaria - Parador de Tejeda in the SpringIt has been nearly a month since I came back from Boston, MA, from attending and presenting at the wonderful Enterprise 2.0 Conference event, and here I am readying to start sharing a number of different blog posts with some of the major highlights from the event itself.

This year I have decided to perhaps put together smaller articles focusing on the various keynote and breakout sessions I attended, as well as sharing some further thoughts on other events I decided to check out and scatter them around with other entries from other interesting and relevant stuff I haven bumped into since I came back, so that we would have some variety along the way…

However, for now I would like to take this opportunity to share with you folks what, to me, has been one of the major highlights from my stay in Boston and which has nothing to do with the #e2conf event at all. A highlight I have been enjoying for the last few weeks and still going strong…

Yes, while in Boston, I, finally, had the opportunity to get my hands on an iPad and bring it back home. Yay!! Indeed, I am now the proud owner of a 64GB 3G iPad! and I am having a blast with it!! I just can’t imagine how I could have gone without it before for so long!

Ever since it came out, I knew it was going to be *the* mobile device that would make my life a lot easier, both at work and in my personal life. But I never thought it would change my online digital habits this bad. For the better, of course! I have gone from spending plenty of time sitting in front of my MacBook Pro, to split that up by nearly half with my iPad. And when doing so I just can’t help thinking about a single word coming to mind: Mobility. With a capital "M". And that is a good thing, right? 😉 Isn’t that what we always wanted to have? An ability to be constantly mobile, yet fully online, and ready to engage.

I guess in its due time I will be putting together a much more in-depth blog post where I will detail what I find truly fascinating from using such mobile device to allow me to stay connected, do my job and still have plenty of good fun along the way. Not that I am not having lots of fun with my MacBook Pro already; it’s just a different kind of fun, if you know what I mean. This post has been drafted from the rich text editor of my blog and must confess the experience has been pretty good, although I am having an issue with the categories, and therefore finalising the post using Qumana, my default offline blogging client on the Mac. I guess perhaps I may not be putting together such long entries with it from here onwards…

How about if we would introduce though, over here, another experiment?: moblogging. Yes, I am thinking it may well be a good idea to explore, specially for those of you who may be into brevity, because that is the essence of mobile blogging, don’t you think? And if you have been following this blog for a little while, you will notice how bad I am at it. Well, this may change things a little bit. What do you think?

Fear not, however, I am not going to turn this blog into a moblog, just exclusively; there will be plenty of opportunities for me to expand a good number of thoughts into larger entries, mostly when I am back in front of my Mac, but with the iPad it’s now time for me to try a few other things and a couple of experiments; the first one … do plenty more moblogging. The following one(s)? Who knows…

You will find out pretty soon, I am sure! For now, going to keep enjoying this major highlight I bought while in Boston after several, miserably failed, attempts over here in Spain. So far it’s been worth the wait and so much more! Hopefully, I will be able to share a proper overview of it pretty soon! Hang in there, although if you already have one, I bet you already know what it is like, right? 😉
