Moblog UK launch year-long online moblogging community for Channel4’s Big Art Project

This is ultra neat. I was chatting, late last week, to Alfie, about this. I’m gratified that the folks at Channel4 are not just listening to Alfie and his colleagues at MoblogUK — but are actually implementing moblogging into a year long project. I could name quite a lot of media companies paying lip service to mobile social communities… but I won’t ;-)

As always, Mike at Vecosys has a very eloquent overview…


moblogUK, the mobile community blogging startup, has now confirmed our earlier scoop that they are launching a moblogging community with broadcaster Channel 4 as part of a TV programme which will allow anyone to document public art across the UK via their mobile.

The TV series ‘Big Art Project’ will be the culmination of a year long online and mobile community, and likely to prove to be one of the biggest social media projects undertaken in the UK to date. Channel 4 has worked with the Arts Council on the project, which will aim to encourage debate about the nature and definition of public art, which could easily include graffiti, if people consider it ‘public art’.

There’s a ton more at the above link — including how MoblogUK are going to geo-tag each incoming image. Get in!
