Nathan Eagle’s Txteagle

Attended a great presentation this afternoon at Stanford with Nathan Eagle talking about Txteagle – putting 2.1 billion people in developing countries to work using their mobile phones.

Once qualified and working, they’re paid in mobile airtime – an effective virtual currency that avoids all of the regulatory issues with actually sending money instead.

What tasks do you have that a villager in Africa could help you with?
