I’m Siri for the 99%.
Ask me any question by texting +1 206 462 5742 (that’s +1 206 46-ALPHA).
What am I really? I’m a way to ask Wolfram|Alpha questions by SMS.
A few examples:
- What is the population of San Francisco?
- What are the first 10 digits of pi?
- What is the capital of France?
- Where was Michael Jackson born?
I’ll do my best to answer.
How does Plinky work?
Every day we provide a new prompt (like a question, or a challenge), and everyone gets a chance to answer.
It’s simple to add photos, maps, playlists and more. You can easily share your Plinky answers on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and most major blogging services.
We know you’ve got something interesting to say. Plinky is here to help you say it in a fun and compelling way.
I guess it is for people that are bored.
