Adam Brin of Tricollege Libraries explained that the “text this to me” feature he built to send location information about items in the library catalog as text messages to a user’s cell phone is being used as many as 60 times a day. That was the news I needed to decide to offer the feature in PSU’s Scriblio implementation.
If I were a patron (oh right, I am a patron) I'd suggest adding an "email this to me" too with the same short text. My cell phone gets email for free, but I have to pay for SMS. Hmmm...I'll bet that it's within scope of a Greasemonkey script to do this....hmm...or a "twitter this to me".
He's using Clickatell which prices out at $0.06 or so per message sent.
Nice hack! Useful too.
