Maybe Mobile Isn’t New Media …

If you’re a bit of a geek, then Dwight Silverman of the Houston Chronicle is someone you know about – a brilliant blogger who does some podcasting and radio work on the technology front. He has a post up about a guy who thinks there’s a woman (or maybe a man, dressed in drag) in the back of a movie scene on a mobile phone.

Which is perfectly normal … except the movie was made by Charlie Chaplin. In 1928.

I’d almost guaranty that it’s not a cell phone, there are some other plausible explanations … but I do wonder if this is going to launch a search into other classic works of art for signs of the future …
