I like this discussion....
I remember hearing that in Britain they have had some kind of interactive
TV for years... long before SMS. Some kind of extra screen??
That startled me.
Also on the other side TV polls by telephone for tallys are also very popular in the US.
(Talk shows.... CNBC etc)
But these things just haven't caught on in Japan which is why they are not
here. We got some weirder mobile stuff here. Like they used to have this
date detector thing.... really weird... where you detect if someone else has the
same device nearby set to the opposite sex.
It makes sense that SMS could be used for these things as well.
(So could email ... or beepers ... or anything).
We're definitely talking more culture here than technology.
Also dc mentioned something about korean multi player games.
"korea KTF have some multiplayer game services"
Last I heard of Lord British is that after he split with Origin he went off
to Korea to program some kind of multi player game. Is he involved with this?
Anyone know? We could use a programmer like him.
