Playing with mobile to Blog

I have been wondering for last few days to try blogging using my mobile phone. Blogger.com does offer such a facility. To get initiated, I had to sent an email to go@blogger.com . This email can not be from a web based service thus using operamini was out of question. I had to configure my Sony Ericsson K750i to use Gmail POP facility. I had to google from phone to find settings. It worked in the very first attempt. Mail to go@blogger.com was successful. As expected an email containning an URL for a new blog and a six digit code was received. All I had do was to visit http://go.blogger.com and enter this code. This became most difficult task for me. I could not do it with my phone. The verification code in the image was the main problem. I had claim my new blog through a PC. While code verification process it allows you change to exiting blog. I am through all the proccess. I am composing this very item on email client of phone. As you are able to read, means I am successful.

Author addendum



Peter Suber, Open Access News

Author addendum is a lawyer-written modification of a publisher's standard copyright transfer agreement, stapled to the original and signed by the author. As a contract modification, publishers may accept or reject it. There are many author addenda in circulation, the most important --in chronological order-- are by SPARC (May 2005), MIT (January 2006), Science Commons (June 2006), OhioLINK (August 2006), SURF-JISC (October 2006), and CIC (February 2007).
