PROTOCOL.BY – where to contact you

Posted on March 21, 2011. Filed under: Email, Gmail (Google Mail), Online Software, Phones, text messaging (SMS), Twitter | Tags: , , , , , , , |

PROTOCOL.BY by the MIT Media Lab is an attempt to show people how best to contact you.

Email?  Phone? Text? Twitter? Carrier pigeon (okay, that’s not one of the options, but you get the idea).

You can describe what you check, and what to use for what kind of communication (for example, email the links and phone numbers and details, but tweet the brief hello messages).

As the options multiply, this is a great idea for a service.  In Beta, but working.
