Mobile phones leading to fairer African elections

CNN are are reporting that mobile phones are helping keep voting and vote counting in check — through independent communication. In the piece, Mike Steere gives an example of journalists being able to use their mobile handsets to call their radio/TV stations to independently verify that voting is proceeding as expected.

The impact of the medium of mobile is, in these types of situation, phenomenal.

Fantastic. There’s a lot more to read in Mike’s piece.
