GuAlive

Description

Typing on an iphone. The presentation linked below is much more interesting, and less prone to grammar-related DISASTERS.

An effort to enable truly mobile, truly live journalism.

Consists of a liveblogging architecture, made efficient by sockets/push notifications and HTML5 technologies.

Content displayed just like guardian.co.uk, but in smaller segments. This makes content live, yet compelling/immersive, and ultimately of a higher standard than a basic liveblog.

The app distributed to authorised journalists is an iPhone app capable of up to 5 minutes recording of video/sound (or rolling), photo-taking and \'headlines\' (tweets, in short).

Code to follow.
