Online book publisher Lulu.com is promoting Robert Bernocco's sci-fi tome, which he wrote on his Nokia 6630 mobile phone while commuting to and from work by train in Italy. According to a press release, the author penned the book, "Compagni di Viaggo" ("Fellow Travelers") in straightforward Italian, not text-messaging shorthand, by dividing the manuscript into small paragraphs saved to the handheld. He later downloaded the passages to his home computer for editing. It took him 17 weeks to write. Lulu.com, founded by Canadian technology entrepreneur Bob Young, is touting Bernocco's work as the triumph of technology and will over the time constraints of modern life.
