Alright, this isn’t a startup idea I’ve ever thought of and frankly it took me a bit of time to “get it”. Cinnaminta offers a marketplace for media – typically audio or video. The founders describe the service as, “like YouTube requests with Google maps”.
Let’s say you would like someone to read a story or passage you have written in a specific place in the world. You post your request on Cinnaminta and then people in that location can pick up and perform the request. Requests are split into a variety of categories including poetry, literature, prayers, performance art, sights and sounds. Here are a few examples of requests:
- poem read in a crop circle
- write these words on a rock in a bear cave
- a poem written by a wife of a soldier killed in combat to be read in his hometown
- video some sheep munching some grass in a field
I can’t figure out how Cinnaminta generates revenue as it appears to be free to post a request and free to complete the request. From what I can tell there are requests for areas around the world.
Cinnaminta is based in the UK and launched in late 2007.
