I was referring to push notifications on the app.  When there are schedule
changes, the app should notify you.  The app should also occasionally push
"fun" messages once or twice a day that people can talk about.

However, you're absolutely right--there should be an option for updates
through whatever medium the attendees prefer.  E-mail and SMS are a minimum.

There were several message feeds from the info desk.  There was an attempt
at a "visual paging" system for attendees.  However, the info desk should
be keeping track of  should be the "hub" of activity which all the teams
feed into.  I totally agree there should be a system for the submission of
pretty much any piece of information.  It would be great to have an
"internal timeline" to look back on to help jar memories as to what to
improve for subsequent events.
