Mobile Phones for Civic Action and Engagement

I have added MobileActive.org to the Blogroll on the right. From their site:

MobileActive is a global network of activists and campaigners using mobile phones for civic action and engagement.

From their website:

Shibuya Epiphany at SmartMobs points to a Washington Post article on how cell phones are changing the way that people protest and are flipping the power from tight-fisted regimes back to the people.  

Justin Oberman writes at MOpocket about a new SMS campaign that registers women to vote and provides them with voting information.  

Speaking of SMS campaigns, this week MobileActive points to an SMS campaign that uses storytelling to raise awareness of teen homelessness in the United States.
