Mobile%20Pic %20SEAsia%203This has been an insane couple of weeks reviewing almost all postings from March 1st until now at the top 250 mobile-related websites identified through Mobile Advance's previous research.  Add on reviewing all Twitter postings using the #mobmin mobile ministry hashtag, Textually updates and ADL Mobile Learning Newsletters over the same period of time and the end result is an additional 2100+ resources on top of the 3400 resources previously catalogued in the mobile ministry database.  In the coming weeks these resources will be further tagged and analyzed to:
