We’ve just launched PlaceShout (http://placeshout.com) – a “cheatsheet”-style summary of places around town, created by you and arbitrated by the community. Now you can see what’s important about a place without wading though stories about someone’s neighbor’s dog.
If you have ever been anywhere, you’ll enjoy making shoutouts. You’re limited to 100 characters, so save the long-winded narratives for someplace else.
You are probably thinking that PlaceShout’s signup process is a long, arduous process. Let me be the first to assure you that it is not. If you have one of those new-fangled OpenIDs, you can sign right in. Because we’re web 2.0 like that.
The easy doesn’t stop there. To make a shoutout, just type it in along with and the name of the place:
Confirm the place:
Like magic, the shoutout appears:
People are shouting out places in small towns and big cities…
Like maps? We have a map. And it has nifty directional arrows:
