Via the MobileActive mailing list, I received this interesting FrontlineSMS Update from Ken Banks. Well worth exploring for those grassroots organizations seeking to use mobile phones more effectively in their work. I am pleased to see there is now a Ning forum for the project for improved networking amongst people seeking to use the tool.
