Pinwheel, New Service for Finding and Leaving Location-Based Notes


Pinwheel is a new service for creating and finding location-based notes. It is currently accepting signups for private beta. Pinwheel was founded by Caterina Fake, co-founder of Flickr and Hunch.

The notes can be public or private, shared with an individual, a group or everyone. They can be organized into sets, such as, say, the “Tales from the Road: KISS’s 1974 Hotter Than Hell Tour”, “Best Spots for Butterfly Hunting”, “Every place that you told me that you loved me, circa 2008? or “Find me a Nearby Toilet NOW”. You can follow people, places and sets. And in the future, you will get notifications on your phone from who and what you choose.
