Cellphedia is an interesting graduate school project by Limor Garcia at Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU (where Clay Shirky teaches).
Limor describes her project this way:
I have created Cellphedia for the curious mobile phone community (which is almost all of us). It is an application that enables its users to send and receive up-to-date encyclopedia-type information amongst each other, on the go, through SMS. I call it: 'The first ubiquitous social encyclopedia'.
I haven't tried it myself, but it looks like an interesting project with practical considerations such as allowing participants to limit the number of SMS messages per day or not allowing messages for a specified time period.
What's next for the mobile social networking world? Let us know.
