movin’ on up: commonplaces has gone mobile

For those of you who prefer to surf the internet and read your blogs via a mobile device (I can’t seem to get along anymore with my iPaq), you will be glad to know that CommonPlaces.org now automatically detects whether you are viewing the site with a mobile browser and renders the content in a more compatible way.

Try it and let me know what you think. Also, please report any bugs!

Anyone know of a mobile RSS aggregator that I recommend to my readers? Why view the site in mobile format when you can just subscribe to the RSS feed?

If you are worried that this newfangled feature will change the content of this blog, never fear. I only need to remind you that Jethro once ordered parts from a catalog and built an Oldsmobile hotrod in the 1968 season of The Beverly Hillbillies – and yet remained a hillbilly.

Did I really just post that?

You may also notice the calendar in the sidebar is gone and has been replaced by a list of most popular posts. Yes, I’ve been playing with plug-ins again. Kudos to Alex King, the developer of both.

    Hi Paul –

    To read RSS feeds on your mobile phone, we make a great product called FreeNews. Its about 20x faster than visiting sites with a browser. It works on most J2ME phones, including Blackberry’s, Symbian, Motorola, Nokia, LG, Samsung and Sony Ericcson.
