By pairing Tropo with CouchDB and a CouchApp running in IrisiCouch, you can have an SMS and phone voting app running entirely in the cloud in about 10 minutes. It should actually take you longer to write up the categories for your voting app than it should to deploy this solution.
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
