Flickr and Hunch co-founder Caterina Fake announces a new startup called Pinwheel.

, co-founder of and photo-sharing site , is back with a new startup called .

Pinwheel, which is currently in private beta, is something that Fake calls ‘a new way to find and leave notes all around the world’.

“The notes can be public or private, shared with an individual, a group, or everyone. They can be organized into sets, such as, say, “Tales from the Road: Kiss’ 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.” She explains on her site.

“Following sets is useful, because that friend of yours with the great taste in coffee shops may also have an unhealthy obsession with, say, 1970s glam metal band Kiss, and frankly, in childhood you were traumatized by a photograph of Gene Simmons and don’t need to repeat that in your dotage.” Fake adds.

Fake who reportedly sold Flickr to Yahoo for a whooping $35 million, unveiled her latest startup on her site, Caterina.net. Visit the source link to find out more.
