5 Minute Mystery Is Appropriate Contents To Mobile Business.

Test Your Inner Sleuth With 5 Minute Mystery(October 20, 2008 TechCrunch) 

Now entrepreneur Randy Okane is trying to bring the format back to life at his site 5MinuteMystery.com.
Every day the site posts a new mystery, followed by the solution the next day. At the end of the story is a menu asking who the reader thinks committed the crime. Users are also asked to highlight up to four statements in each story, indicating if they either Exonerate or Incriminate one of story’s characters. To help spice things up, the site keeps score for every member based on their accuracy, with the most ingenious detectives featured on the site’s leaderboard.
Unlike many mystery stories, which tend to be gruesome, 5MinuteMystery is being written to appeal to a younger audience. Crimes are gore-free, and tend to be written at an accessible reading level. The site charges $20 a year for a daily subscription, and offers a program for schools and charities who receive 50% of all subscriptions sold through their fundraising efforts. Prospective authors can also submit their own stories and will be paid if their stories are published.

This business is an interesting business.

Is such a site also in Japan?

I do not think that there is such a site as long as I know.

Because the novel that can be read with the cellular phone in Japan is popular, this site might be good for a mobile business.

When a little free time can be done, this site might just be good.

Parents do not worry if the content is made a story to consider young reading population either.

Moreover, it might be good all the more for this if becoming the capital to the school and the charity group.

In addition, it is likely to become a contest like a good gateway to success for the person who aims at the mystery writer.

It is likely to become a dream story that the prize is obtained and the road of the mystery writer of a real sect opens it to the most interesting mystery writer up to now if adopted.

If the idea of this site is taken, it seems to become a better site though such a site might already be also in Japan.
