Numbers

without comments

There were some issues with Pigeon numbers and pins beginning with 0’s, which have now been resolved.

Pigeon can also now skip a message when 7 is dialed.  I’ve got something like 20 contacts now, and want to be able to skip through messages to play my favorite one for someone to hear or to find new messages.  This could be useful if you have 3 contacts as well.  Soon new messages should be cued to the top of the message pile.

A little under 50 people have signed up and been testing Pigeon so far.

Pigeon, video edited

with one comment

I edited my original Pigeon video about 2 weeks ago but didn’t post it to the blog. The edited video (by happy accident) is just over 1 minute.  In a future edit, I’d like to emphasize the amount of information that I was able to fit into the video in just one minute (the same amount of time given for each Pigeon message).

Rob Katz describes NextBillion.net as this:

..a movement in which profit is not seen in a pejorative way. Profit is actually seen as a way we can drive positive economic development…
