Speaking of an auspicious beginning to the New Year, kudos to Jed Alpert and the rest of the Mobile Commons/Rights Group team for being named to Fast Company Magazine's Fast 50 list! The theme of this year's Fast 5o list is Report from the Future, 50 Profit-Driven Solutions for What Ails Our Planet. What Jed has created is a solution that taps into our frustration with the state of things and allows us to give voice. Wouldn't you make that call to your Senator if it only took one click from your cellphone? Hundreds of thousands have, which is why NRDC, ACLU, John Edwards, Aveda and Working Assets are among dozens of other clients that have embraced this.
Mobile rich media platforms are a great dream, but Jed has proven that mobile can do good - and do well - today.
