1 billion youth worldwide now own a mobile phone. Every single one of them has a story to tell. During this podcast author Graham Brown tracks down the voices of this disconnected generation from the slums of Rio's favelas to Amish kids in Lancaster County using cell phones to secretly access Facebook away from the prying eyes of their parents. Each chapter is a story of innovation, hope and change. “The Mobile Youth: Voices of the Mobile Generation” is written for marketers, technologists and futurists alike interested in how today’s cell phone empowered generation will change technology, media and even government.
