Mippin connects mobile users to their favorite web content, which for mobile means the freshest content optimized for small screens. It has a search function (although a search for “mobile2.0” didn’t discover any R/WW posts), and if you find a good story you can share it – via services like Twitter. It also allows you to publish content.
