”What’s 43 Folders?”
43Folders.com is Merlin Mann’s website about finding the time and attention to do your best creative work.

SMS mass notification, is it possible?

The wife and I are expecting and rather than spending the first half of her labor phoning everyone, or the first bit of the baby's life phoning everyone re: the birth, etc, I would much rather send a quick SMS to a service that then sends it on to a group of people that I have predefined.

I do plan on setting the GrandCentral voice mail to keep people updated on the baby, but for the beginning of labor and when the baby arrives, I need to send out a quick message.

Does something like this exist? I was looking at Pinger (www.pinger.com), but I am looking for other services.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
