Tapping into a library of answers using cell-phones

I saw this article in today's New York Times about "Question Box" an answering service that people in the Uganda call into with their cell-phones and citizen-librarians scour the web for answers and call them right back. A simple solution that empowers and catalyzes development!
I was struck by the fact that these citizen-librarians are paid in cell-phone minutes ...similar to our approach to TB Therapeutic Compliance - XoutTB!
