What the future of journalism should be (AKA journalist makes new media work for him)

Jim Macmillan is a reporter (and other things) over in Philadelphia and he recently had a call to a fire. The rest of the tale is in the piece Just f8 and be there but basically, armed with an iPhone he was able to go and cover a story, file pics and be paid all before leaving the scene. 

This is the sort of thing newspapers should be looking at. When papers talk about training staff up for the new future of journalism, they should be getting in touch with Nokia and getting N95s for all staff (reason I say the N95 is that the N97 isn’t out yet and I think the N95 has more features than the iPhone as I showed in a review where I used the N95 as a reporting tool for covering T in the Park.)
