In October, Nathan plans to launch txteagle, a project that sends people small, simple tasks to do on their cell phones. Nathan observed that you can spend a lot of time waiting in Africa, and that people could put that time to better use by working on their mobile phones. What kind of work are we talking about? Nathan has posted some samples on the txteagle site.
He goes on to talk about some of the genius ideas for new mobile phones apps he's seeing in Africa and highlights one example where mobile phones are changing the way Rwandans pay for their electricity (9:05 in the audio below). He also gives his two cents on what the future holds for mobile tech.
