SMS driven encyclopedia

!Cellphedia is a thesis project created by Limor Garcia, graduate student at the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU. It's a cell phone application that allows to send and receive encyclopedia-type inquiries between specific, pre-defined groups of users, through text messaging.
Users can register on !Cellpadia's site and start building the quick-reference encyclopedia entries, by asking other users and answering other users' questions where-ever cell phone service is available.
"Cellphedia will be the new way to get encyclopedia type information on the run. After creating a profile, a user will be able to get all the information they need – from “how old is the queen of England?” to “how many miles is the Brooklyn Bridge?” – while they’re walking in the street.
