This paper reports on the deployment of a open, public SMS service, Txt-2-DISplay, at a public event hosted by a university. The service enabled texting to a public display in the foyer of a building inhabited by ‘regulars’, largely known to each other and with some previous association with the building, and ‘visitors’ who were visiting the building for the day. Here we describe the design of the display and present a summary of the messages sent to the service. We then discuss the implications of our experiences for the evaluation of mobile and ubiquitous systems and present some conclusions regarding usage of this ‘technology probe’ reflect on our approach as a means of evaluating such public interactions.
