Running with Cell Phones
This NYT piece about marathon runners who use cell phones is interesting. Some runners say calling folks after every mile dilutes the experience and that they should make calls after they cross the finish line. That may well be true, but how about this: What if your phone could automatically send out info about you and your progress to the web? Then your friends and relatives could tune in or sign up to get these progress reports and you would know they were all getting them. That would be cool.
