Mobile Phones for Social Influence and Civic Action


News / Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

Found a great site today (MobileActive.org) with solid data on global mobile usage statistics in addition to some great free downloadable content on using mobile phones for social activism. The site has a decidedly non-profit/non-governmental orientation but many of the resources, tools, and reports can be applied to responsible business promotion and effective customer interaction. You can read about projects that are being undertaken all across the planet to better utilize mobile technology in addition to finding mobile tools and vendors or adding your tool, project or company to the MobileActive database. The blog features current affairs information of interest to mobile entrepreneurs and activists alike. This site is one of the best I’ve found so far that will help you to stay at the forefront of what I view as a soon-to-come revolution in mobile technology that will far exceed our current understanding and use of personal computing and instantaneous, participatory communications. Mobile phones will become more common place and useful as personal productivity tools and entertainment devices than any other invention in history. Watch.
