      Woo has become a footnote in TV news history. He's the first broadcast
      network correspondent with the title "wireless reporter."

      In contrast to most network reporters, who work in teams or groups and
      use bulky cameras and satellite transmitters, the 28-year-old Bostonian
      and NYU graduate carries a small video camera and tripod, microphones
      and a laptop with editing software. He sends his work to ABC's control
      room on the Upper West Side of Manhattan via a wireless card installed
      in his laptop.

        Lateline uses 1 reporter, 1 camera, 1 tibook. no wireless but amazing
        low tech documentary journalism:
        http://www.sbs.com.au/dateline
        (btw this is Australia's free to air national multicultural tv station)

        cheers
