Hi Charles,
A great concept and definitely in line with my thinking on giving voice to an unheard communities.
What solution were you thinking about for the translation of the forum for international participants, or were you thinking the forum would be only accessible domestically?
Also, would there be provision made for community members who aren't literate? Obviously these people wouldn't be able to participate in a text chat based forum, but in some communities there may be a significant proportion of people who can't read & write.

Hi Majed,
Thanks for the positive feedback. Yes it would be great if these voices could be heard! The potential for creating jobs could potentially be greater than just people working in these booths. Perhaps a government scheme could be setup that helps employ members of these communities to take action on the issues that are highlighted through the ShoutBox. That would be a perfect full-circle realisation of the idea.
