Blog Post at Ushahidi.com on SMS in Liberia

I had the opportunity to guest write a blog post on the Ushahidi blog were I talked about the issues and solutions we encountered while using SMS in Liberia. Liberia’s infrastructure was greatly weakened by the civil war there, and though they have come a long way, it still requires some ingenuity to setup reliable services. I give the details of the problems we ran into, the solutions we came up with, and the iterations that finally brought us to a point where we could reliably forward SMS traffic to our servers running Ushahidi.
