Mojo, a mobile journalism, fully depends on technology, emphasizes the importance of speed and multimedia. Quinn pointed out that technology brought convenience and enhances the efficiency of Mojo.


“The journalists no longer need to carry the heavy cameras and purchase the expensive equipments." said Quinn, giving a talk at Shue Yan University.


He explained that a camera, a video recorder and a transmitter are all combined into an all-in-one device—a smart-phone.


However, such convenience brought an alarm of privacy intrusion. “It is so easy to (find?) the privacy of someone. With digital information, it is so easy to videotape others,” said Quinn, adding that privacy is limited and (who?encourages illegal filming).


He gave an example that people can pretend that they are reading by using their smart phones, but in fact they are filming secretly. Therefore, the dangers of technology are ubiquitous.


With easy online access, Quinn stressed that professional journalists should be perpetually creative in order to compete with citizen journalist(plural).
