The SMS wall actually did work!

It took some effort and some perseverence on the part of Pierre, but in the end the SMS wall did work and was put to good use in the debate Wilfred gave on the more ethical questions regarding the use of blogs and wiki's in education. I heard he will be posting about that soon.

Hi Snafu,

I am sorry that I cannot help you. We rented the wall (and the accompanying software) from the dutch telecom provider KPN. If the event is in The Netherlands you could try them. An alternative might be trying a Twitter wall. Perhaps Twitter would support a good cause...
Good luck!
Keith

Have an nice day!
