Moblogs Have Become Flogs?

Okay, it’s getting tough to keep all the blogging terminology straight. This article, which talks about why carriers might want to start pushing mobile phone blogs as a potential wireless data killer app. It talks about how addictive they are, and how they seem to fit into the way that many early adopters are using their camera phones. Notice, once again, that this is a killer app that involves user created, not carrier created, content. However, what struck me is that, rather than “moblogs”, as these are usually called, the guy calls them phone blogs, which he then shortens to flogs. I think we’re getting way too many of these names.
