Stephen Quinn presents in this rather concise publication the concept of mobile journalism (mojo) within the Asian context. Along with practical tips on jow to be a mojo in this region, Quinn provides case studies and examples in an anecdotal form from Asia and around the world to support his argument that journalists in Asia need to embrace new technlogies and learn how to to maximise the use of mobile phones to improve and increase their mobility.
