Moderator doesn't appear to have any size restrictions.  Seems like it
would work.  You could also use a web gateway to IRC or a XMPP MUC
channel.  Or you could write your phone number (or a pay-as-you-go
phone SIM with SMS purchased for the event, if you don't want to share
your number) and have people SMS the feedback in.  Or you could hand
out note cards and pencils. :)
