In the same vein as the beacon idea, here is an application that was envisioned for NYC? How can we customize this idea to address issues of safety?

Hi MIchelle-- we are a classroom full of people in a nonprofit management class. We're discussing your idea so thanks for posting it. We wondered about the availability of pay phones. Might there be a way to have an app version of this also.?
