Topic: integrating health section
12:26:31 [raphael]
I don't think it makes a lot of sense, for the points you made and were made in previous sessions
12:27:08 [steph]
renjish: discussed one year ago, should not integrate this section in this last phase
12:27:18 [steph]
no spcific section to fot
12:27:22 [steph]
12:27:43 [steph]
Resolution: no integration in this version of the document of a section on health
12:28:02 [steph]
Topic: mentionning a R&D direction to integrate better SMS and the Web
12:28:02 [steph]
(suggested by renjish)

SMS forum was working on the encoding aspect
12:32:27 [steph]
arun: might not be the future
12:32:50 [steph]
that's why perhaps there is no investment
12:33:53 [steph]
arun: is it worthwile to do it now ?

raphael: in lots countries, underusage of data service
12:37:32 [steph]
gprs cheaper than sms
12:37:38 [ArunKumar]
I agree with Raphael ... data and GPRS would soon overtake SMS in the text domain
12:38:00 [ArunKumar]
So, it is not a question of voice vs SMS but is SMS the right mode for text modality
12:38:39 [raphael]
yes indeed
12:39:26 [raphael]
maybe also some level of icons

rrsagent, make log public
13:01:41 [Renjish]
agreed and that's why it's not the technology itself but other factors that drive technology choice...
13:03:03 [ArunKumar]
13:03:09 [raphael]
13:04:28 [raphael]
For the record, I say that we should mention that data applications are under used and under created, consireing the comparative advantage, cost-wise (GPRS<<SMS)
13:06:20 [raphael]
ok with your ccl, Steph
13:06:25 [Renjish]
something's missing.. else the market forces would have tilted in favour of GPRS?
13:06:51 [raphael]
"market forces" are also telecom op driven
13:08:23 [Renjish]
so monopolistic...
13:08:43 [raphael]
ohh yes
13:11:01 [raphael]
on the good side, it allowed the telco explosion in dev. ctries
13:11:03 [Renjish]
It's fine with me
13:11:10 [ArunKumar]
26th is fine with me
13:11:22 [Renjish]
Raphael, can we then say that ignorance is the issue?
