I wrote a Wikipedia Entry!

So I wrote a Wikipedia entry on – what else – the Mobile Web using – what else – the Mobile Web! Check it out and contribute to fleshing it out. The original entry was composed on a Nokia N70 using the Opera browser. The amazing thing was that it was possible – just. The text field on Opera was really buggy and couldn’t hold much text and the whole process of logging in was really cumbersome. Still, it’s a step.

The entry itself was written partially out of a need to put a stake in the ground around the term “mobile Web.” Some have taken this to mean “a separate web for mobile devices” but the meaning taken in the majority of use (including the definition we are using in the W3C Mobile Web Initiative) is the use of the Web (cap W) on mobile devices.
