This volume, published in December 2013 by Oxford University Press, includes Dr. Sharath Srinivasan's piece, 'FrontlineSMS, Mobile-for-Development and the 'long tail' of governance', which sets out a typology of dominant use cases of the innovative and highly popular open source software FrontlineSMS and argues that the software, albeit idealising the grassroots user, is less a tool for community 'self-governance' than for institutionalised actors who 'co-govern' with or substitute state governance.
