For my computer networks class, I convinced our group to do a project involving the SMS protocol. We agreed to do some sort of SMS service, where you’d message a particular number or email address (not obvious that you can message an email address!) using a small command language, and access web services such as email, calender, etc.

We ended up with web search and email (through google’s OpenAuth and a registration website we cooked up), and managed to do a demo live in class during our report. We used a Nokia N900 and two webservers, which aren’t live anymore unfortunately, shit’s expensive.
