Dossiê sobre Comunicação Móvel no Brasil

Acaba de ser publicado o número especial do Wi: Journal of Mobile Media sobre o Brasil com a temática Comunicação e Mobilidade. Tive o prazer de participar desta edição, à convite de Andre Lemos e Fábio Josgrilberg, com o artigo Mobile Technologies as production platforms in Brazilian journalism, onde apresento uma discussão sobre o jornalismo móvel com a indicação de algumas experiências do país a partir do uso de tecnologias móveis e conexões sem fio na rotina jornalística. Esta edição certamente é a publicação que aborda com mais profundidade o fenômeno da comunicação móvel no Brasil como Estado da Arte contribuindo efetivamente para as discussões na área. Abaixo todos os artigos disponíveis para leitura:
