6C: FrontlineSMS

A session at OpenTech 2010

Saturday 11th September, 2010

5:00pm to 6:00pm (GMT)

FrontlineSMS is free, open-source software that turns a mobile phone or modem and a computer into a two-way messaging device, allowing you to interact cheaply with anyone with a phone. It's being used all over the developing world for anything from rural health services to election monitoring to human rights campaigning - but how can it be used in the UK to bridge the digital divide and reach disconnected, or mobile-oriented groups like the homeless, women experiencing domestic violence, or young people?
