iLobby. Bono Wants to Create iPhone App that Lets People Contact Their Representative (and read from a script).

June 1st, 2011

From Roll Call:

The rock-musician-turned-activist Bono wants you to know: You, too, can be a lobbyist, and all you need is an iPhone.

ONE, the anti-poverty group co-founded by Bono, launched an app Wednesday that lets iPhone users call their lawmakers at the touch of a button. It even provides a script of what to say.

By making it easy for someone to lobby while in line at the post office or while watching television, the group expects to have many more of its 2.5 million grass-roots supporters involved in influencing policy.

I wonder what the script will say? Bono is the record!
