For those of you who saw UNICEF's presentation at the mw4d conference in
Brazil and wanted to look at, hack on, or use the RapidSMS system, we have
put the code on sourceforge. You can find it here:


For those that don't know, RapidSMS is an open source SMS-based monitoring,
data collection tool and communication tool that allows both quantitative
and qualitative data through SMS forms and bulk SMS messaging feature. It
also incudes support for IVR interaction and voice callback. It is mostly
built in python and uses other large opensource projects such as Django,
Asterisk, Kannel, and MobilEd.

Matt Berg of the Millennium Villages Project based out of Columbia
University, wrote a long review of the software here:
