I am Mat

(viewed 1499 times)
I done it. It were me. I programmed moblog v1, and I oversaw development of moblog v2. I am account number one. I've been much less active over the last year or so, due to persistent repetitive strain injuries, but that doesn't mean I care less about the site. What it means is I get frustrated that I can't do the work it needs doing on it.

- What kind of stuff are you likely to highlight on moblog?

Things I like. So, nice photos, funny photos, interesting photos - even boring photos with interesting text attached. There's no real criteria in my mind other than "is this something I think other people might like to see"

- Where do you live?

UK. Just outside Norwich. I live with my girlfriend, some other friends, and the best dog in the world

- How long have you had a Moblog?

Five years and nine months. Mine was the first account ever created, unsurprisingly.

- What does Moblog mean to you?

It means a place to journal my life. I'm too lazy to write up text-mode blog posts - if a picture says a thousand words, I've saved writing 2,016,000 words since starting my moblog. That's quite a lot of keyboard time!

It's nice to be able to keep up with friends, both those I made in the flesh, and those from the internets. I like seeing other places, and other people's views on life. The things people choose to take photos of, and how they do so, is usually interesting.

- What is your favourite means of taking photgraphs?

I like to use a camera.

My Nikon D50+18-200mm zoom is my goto setup, but I enjoy a lensbaby on there from time to time, and my phone's camera is now pretty tasty too. I have a Sony Ericsson C905. I like to play with vintage film cameras too - I have quite a collection including some LOVELY old Feds and the classic Lomo LCA. Film is currently a bit pricey for me to tinker with so much, but that's a wagon I entirely plan to remount when I get the chance.

- If you had to draw a moblog family tree, who would you be linked to
and how?

I can do a diagram.

I'm not account number one for nothing. :)

- What would you most like to happen to moblog in the future?

I would like it to regain further its community focus. We tried to run it as a business, and for whatever reason, that didn't work out so well. Mistakes were made, for which we're sorry. I don't think that there isn't the potential to make money from the site, and I don't rule out doing that (Moblog's business arm, moblogtech ltd, needs to pay off its debts somehow!), but I think the first step to doing that is to let the people who use and love the site the most take more of the helm. After all, you guys know what you want - and if you have that, more people like you will come along and join the site. And that's got to be a good thing.
