Abstract

The generation and sharing of digital content is being transformed by new advances in mobile blogging technology. Here we wish to reflect on and review blogging and pervasive image capture and sharing practices reported on in literature to gain new insights for directions into future research of moblogging practices in the course of everyday lived life. Specifically we wish to stretch recently adopted rapid ethnographic approaches (i.e. probes) and the notion of ‘digital document’ to gain insights into how real time capture and seamless publishing and sharing of digital content in different kinds of places (domestic, work, third-place and civic) may: lead to a tighter coupling between ‘blog-life’ and real-life; augment existing physical communities; provide opportunities for sharing content via displays; sharpen (or blur) the differences between what particular technologies are used for; reduce editing of shared content; demand different metaphors for sharing content; increase awareness of self and others; and instigate more ‘economical’ interactions across different channels.
