News: Canadians Get Flirty With SMS

By | September 21, 2003
 Canada seems to be getting into SMS/texting, call it what you will. Next week Toronto’s Café Havana will host the country’s first text-messaging party (‘Text And The City’) as part of a (somewhat belated, I can’t help feeling) awakening of the potential for SMS. According to the Toronto Star, SMS volumes still don’t compare to Europe (or Asia, I’m assuming) but they’re picking up.
If you’re in Toronto, register online at and pay $8 at the door. Once registered, you’ll be assigned a number that lets people send you an anonymous text message. And since you’ll be anonymous as well, whether you hook up with somebody depends on your skills as a wireless flirter.
