Microblogging is cool, with Twitter, Jaiku, Tumblr, and Pownce, among others. The latter now have added a mobile interface, apparently not really meant to go online already, but I tried it out, of course. Before we get to the video, I’d just like to say that I enjoy Pownce a lot. I’m even a pro […]
