- 99% of Tanzanians are in direct reach of a mobile phone.

We've all known that mobile adoption in Africa and other parts of the developing world has been growing at a remarkable pace, but what to do with that information? How are we changing the way we engage with our stakeholders (development practitioners, civil society organizations, parliamentarians, project beneficiaries, etc.) knowing that many of them are using mobile interfaces?
More importantly, where do we draw the line between the traditional corporate website and the mobile interface? Is there a line to be drawn, or is it blurring constantly to the point where the traditional site is actually part of the mobile experience? Are any organizations doing this well already?
A few questions that I've been playing with here. If you have any insight, let me know. Thanks!
