SMS to web live audience polling

An audience response system is a pretty snazzy way to engage conference attendees in polls during keynote presentations, but the cost of renting such systems is often more than a meeting planner is willing to spend.

But wait! This audience response system is web-based and receives votes by text messaging. It's called Poll Everywhere, and it looks very enticing. Results are calculated in real time and can be displayed live in a web browser. Oh, and did I mention that it's one-tenth the price of hardware-based audience response systems, according to the developer? You can receive up to 600 responses per poll for $150 a month and up to 10,000 responses per poll for $370 a month. Cancel any time!

Bonus: They keep everything private so Andy and Wes can't mine the data. ;-)
