Started using tripit.com

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

I’ve started to use tripit.com. It’s really handy service to have your trips organized. You simply forward all the confirmation mails you receive from hotels, airlines and travel agencies to plan@tripipt.com and it will be automagically added to your account. When it’s in there you can easily reserve seats in your plane. Look which seats or good. Get weather forecasts, maps etc. etc. Furthermore you can share your travel destinations in your network. So friends or business contacts can see that you are in a certain place. In linkedin.com you can also install the tripit applications so your contacts can see where you are going.

I’ve just started using it last week and put 3 upcoming trips in there and an old friend noticed that I was going to be in Barcelona the same days he’s there.

RedesignMe.com

When looking for startups to add to hightechstartups.nl I came across RedesignMe. It’s actually also located on the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven where I work for Civolution. This weekend I made an account on RedesignMe to try it out. Basically companies can ask members of RedesignMe for feedback on their products. When you help you can earn RDMs for which you can buy in the end something in the shop of redesignme.

Cool site if you like designing stuff
