21st Century Confession Booth is a service for anyone to anonymously unload the burden of a sin or secret.
Confessions could be dropped off by entering them on the web at confessionbot.com, by calling 718-406-0483, or by finding one of our public confession microphones. Messages were anonymously transcribed and posted to our Confession Booth account on Twitter.
Behind the scenes, the phone system is using quicktate.com’s API to transcribe speech to text and a custom PHP script to deliver the confession to Twitter.
Specially interesting the way the trascription is made, it gives a poetic flavor to possibly boring confessions.
