I’m starting find usable applications for streaming video from my mobile phone. Different services and technologies have been around for a while, but I just didn’t know what’s the whole point in using them.
Here’s one example – sharing ad hoc content easily.
This morning I was taking a tram to my Office Nomad site at Codento, when I bumbed into Jozsef Pap from RunToShop. I realized that I could actually take advantage of the moment and start sharing our ad hoc discussion with other people as well.
Here’s the very first and very short Tramterview. It’s in Finnish but next time we’ll do English.
This is done with my great Nokia E71, running Qik video streaming service over 384k (!) 3G connection from a moving tram. No editing whatsoever.

Something quite special is going on in Finland. The government is about to sign a law that would allow various organisations to read the email contents from the users of their own networks. This includes companies, libraries, kindergardens and many others.
Many people think this new law is against privacy laws, and have started a citizen movement that resists the new law. This law is called “Lex Nokia”, since Nokia is a big supporter of the law, claiming that it allows them to prevent employees leaking out classified information and thus stop industrial espionnage.
There are many sources in Finnish for this information, in English one of the hottest resources is Helsingin Sanomat.
The citizen movement started to run their own ads on national TV this morning. The advertising space is paid by individuals and the production was made by volunteers.
