List of new technologies being deployed for change

SmartMobs, via Wikipedia, has an interesting list of ways people are using SMS (text messaging on cell phones) to achieve political change. Prominent examples include organizing protest rallies after the Madrid train bombings and the use of "text message chain letters" by the successful opposition to a sitting Philippine President.

"Text message chain letters" - this may be the very definition of "everything old is new again."
