  • Thank you IrisMaking Social Apps using mobile technology is all well and good, but what about commercial sustainability? How can we ensure that these are not just social apps, but that they can be widely available and accessible to those who most need them. Answering that question, are Mark Herringer and Linnet Taylor. Mark currently runs Countryman Media a digital agency based in London. Recent work concerns the development of spatially aware applications for web and mobile. He is motivated by the potential of non-market production open source software and open business models.Linnet Taylor is currently conducting doctoral research on migration and the ICT sector in Ghana, where her focus is on the interrelation between mobility and entrepreneurship. She worked as a journalist in Mexico and the US, then joined the Rockefeller Foundation in 2004. There she worked on programmes dealing with creativity and culture, economic security, and international migration and development.
