Moblogging at Glastonbury Festival with Greenpeace, Oxfam and WaterAid

Here's an exciting project I've been working on recently (sorry about the PR speak, it's some copy I've been using in promotion!).

Glastonbury is a giant music festival, the biggest in the UK and probably in Europe, but it's located on a working dairy farm and we need to leave the farm the way the cows like it. So the only trace of this year's festival we want to leave behind are images, videos and text messages. So Greenpeace, Oxfam and WaterAid are collaborating with Moblog to capture the sights and sounds (but, thankfully, not the smells) on a mobile blogging website or moblog.

Greenpeace uses ringtones in campaign

Just a quick note about the current Greenpeace campaign surrounding the UN vote on a bottom trawling moratorium. Our international office created a South Park style viral animation featuring a song lovingly reversioned from the South Park Movie. On top of that, they're offering ringtones as MP3 downloads so you can support the campaign wherever you go. These just launched today so no idea on take-up yet but should be interesting.
