Upoc SMS Chats with gold medallists

This is a very interesting sign of how things have changed… I recall how about 10 years ago (1995), AOL hosted (and perhaps still does) live chats with celebrities in their forums. Now it’s all being done from the mobile…

Last week, AT&T Wireless and Upoc Networks hosted a moderated, live “TXT Chat” for fans of swimming phenomenon Michael Phelps. Subscribers were invited to join the chat session by texting the word “swim” to the number 11111 from their handsets, and could then send in their questions for Phelps via text message, according to a company press release.
