Who needs computers? Citizen Journalism direct from camera phones

There's a great article on AfricaNews today about training African camera phone-based journalists to capture & file stories using Nokia E61i phones with portable keyboards. They are calling the reporters 'camjos' (a combination of camera & journalist). The acronym may be a bit unwieldy, but the idea is amazing -- it's great to see more and more of these project start to happen.
