1) If you want to know more of how mobile is intersecting with the lives of those at the lower end of the economic spectrum in the developing world (read that- THE UNREACHED) check out Smartphones in the Developing World: Why Platform Fragmentation is Here to Stay.

Antoine Wright at Mobile Ministry Magazine has had a string of deeply insightful postings on mobile ministry this last week and I highly recommend the following three postings for your thoughtful consideration and deliberation
This past week I was re-introduced to Lessons from Babel, the blog of Biola University professor Dave Bourgeois. Dave teaches on internet outreach and his passion is "to see technology used by Christ-followers to bring the love of Jesus Christ to the world". Although I can heartily recommend his entire blogsite these are two of the articles I found most helpful
9) Getting in Their Stream- although the post is somewhat internet-centric the philosophy behind the approach is very important. We need to follow Jesus in seeking the unreached, in this case finding how they are interacting with each other and the wider world via technology and getting the gospel into those same interaction streams!
