Web 2.0 is reinventing how we communicate; how we think; how we do business and politics; how we travel, work, eat, shop, play. And, since I’ve never been one to shy away from a bandwagon, I’ve gladly jumped aboard.
I also recently registered with Dopplr, which is billed as a, “service for smart international travellers.” Why add that to my already-burgeoning suite of social networks? Why not! I travel internationally and didn’t fall off the turnip truck recently, so I figured it couldn’t hurt. Besides, I think the name is quite clever.
My next foray: Urbanspoon.
My friend Rachelle, whom I’ve mentioned previously, blogs about food and through Urbanspoon has the top-rated food blog in Ottawa. While I doubt I will be able to achieve the same notoriety, I will certainly look to her for guidance and inspiration as I set off in search of new haunts in Winnipeg to replace the restaurants and bars I will be leaving behind when I bid farewell to Ottawa.
