AudioSnacks - User Generated Tours
I recently met a great Chicago entrepreneur, Michael Salvatore, who recently launched AudioSnacks.com. AudioSnacks is a site that has audio tours for great locations around the world but with a twist. All the tours are user generated so if you have some cool hot spots in your hood then you could record a tour for people to listen to when they visit. All you have to do is upload it to the site. Plus you get cut in on the action. The writer of the tour sets the price and the prices are reasonable. Some tours are free.
I know the initial reaction is that some tours must suck but that is not the cas. All content is reviewed and there are a set of guidelines. To get a feel for it there is a Training Page that breaks it down.
I see AudioSnacks as the travelers cool friend that knows all the cool spots that your don't find in Frommers.
I have another post for the future about Michael's The Uncle John Project. Which is a photography site with a unique story as to how the prints came back to life.
