The People’s Skype by Alyx Baldwin is a mobile phone broadcasting and voting system designed specifically for protest assemblies. A speaker calls The People’s Skype number and starts a one-way teleconference that fellow protesters can listen to on their own cell phones. Listeners can cast yes or no votes by dialing one or zero. The People’s Skype is a technological alternative to the human microphone or “people’s mic.”
