Reference: You can pay for the service too!
I snapped this picture ages ago and forgot about it sitting on my phone. What a revolutionary new service, where you can text and get a text answer about anything! Only two dollars a call!
I generally call this “IM a friend whose online while I’m not”. God forbid they learn of this service and start charging me.
It would be cool if libraries started doing this, though…text questions. I bet most of them would be directional. (“Where’s the nearest Gap?”)
