Here's a pic from my phone. Oh, and we can't send stuff via SMS from OZ yet…unless we dial to the UK. Sometimes, just sometimes, it might be worth it. Otherwise via email is pretty cool.
So this is crossposting to my blog, twitter, and of course to Posterous. Nice 🙂

I’ve just set up a posterous account via email, and it totally blew me away. This is the quickest thing on earth to set up and get kids blogging. It’s the quickest thing on earth for cross posting. Well, I just like it …it’s fun.
What’s more you can attach any type of file and they’ll post it along with the text of your email.
They’ll do smarter things for photos, MP3’s, documents and video links
I’m off to test this with an email right now!! Cool. Thanks to Maureen for sending me a recommendation 🙂
