2013-01-monthly:

We are finishing work on capturing the metrics from the SMS server to learn usage numbers and determine how many sessions are completed.


Rationale[edit | edit source]

There are millions of people in the world that don't have a smart phone. We want these people just like everyone else to benefit from free and open knowledge. Through an open source project called vumi and the Wikipedia API we are developing a solution to access Wikipedia even if you don't have a smartphone with a data plan. We'll be working with various partners around the world to make this available.
