Great idea. LoudSauce is a crowdsourcing platform for buying public ad space
for social messaging on a variety of platforms. This would be a great
collaboration and I know their founder Colin if anyone is interested in
connecting with them. It's like kickstarter for taking over billboards and
TV time.
