“Quick Pitch: Yoink makes it simple to give away your unwanted items and find free goods near you.
Genius Idea: For years, savvy Internet denizens have used the Freecycle network group in their city to give away stuff they don’t want and to find free items for pickup. The only problem with Freecycle is that everything is managed in Yahoo Groups, making the whole experience rather clunky.
Others have used Craigslist to accomplish the same task, but this approach can be time-consuming, both while searching for the exact item you want and while traveling sometimes-long distances to get it.
Yoink employs the exact same everybody-wins-when-we-recycle-and-reuse-goods mentally but modernizes the entire experience and makes it easy to find items near you.”
