I just arrived in Manila and I’m desperate for an Internet connection — I want to download Flock and see what all the buzz is about. I got the email on the expanded beta downloads this morning and I had to fight the urge to immediately download the software and try it out. I knew that had I downloaded Flock, I risked missing my flight to the capital. From the screenshots released by developers, Flock promises to be a great tool for bloggers. Tomorrow, PCIJ is hosting a conference on blogging for mainstream journalists. (Darn, who designs keyboards with power off keys near the delete tab: I used to have this keyboard in the office but I took the power button out with a screwdriver. I can’t do it here: the Internet cafe owner will kill me.)
