Comp time! I received an email from Ken Banks, the founder of the FrontlineSMS system was used to monitor last April's elections.
This time, he's spearheading nGOmobile, a text message-based competition aimed at grassroots non-profit organisations working for positive social and environmental change throughout the developing world.
From the website:
The competition wants to encourage NGOs to think more about how mobile technology could be applied in their work.
NGOs from developing countries are invited to submit a short proposal outlining how text messaging could make their job easier.
The competition closes on the 14th of December 2007. Check the website for info on how to apply.
