In an effort to capture the Park City experience through social networking, text messaging and camera-phone reporting, Lance Weiler has created a “social mobile experiment” to document Sundance and Slamdance this year. Head over to the link for more info and to sign up.

Here’s how Weiler describes it:

WHO: We’re looking for people headed to Park City – so if you know anyone else that might be interested please forward them this email

WHY: This is a free social mobile experiment to capture the festival experience from multiple people and to create a collage of those experiences.

WHAT: We need people who would be interested in documenting their daily activities. Here’s the cool part, you use your mobile phone to text message in your updates. Nothing more than 100 characters, so it’s a sentence or two. What are you watching, attending, drinking, eating, or seeing? For those who have cameras you’re welcome to snap and record your experiences and then email them for automatic posting.

I’ll be going to Park City but will be checking out the site… but maybe starting next week. Several bloggers have already started posting and the pre-Sundance entries include such tidbits as “Eating Burger King after class,” “Taking a nap… so tired” and “Making that good old coffee.”
