Web 2.0 Travel Tools - Goals

This blog is devoted to creating a list of web 2.0 websites and webtools that are, in some way, related to Travel and Tourism.

What is Web 2.0? I suggest these websites to answer that question:

* Web 2.0 : the 24 Minute Documentary (video on TechCruch)
* Web 2.0 Videos and Powerpoint Presentations - If you are a visual learner, this is great
*
Wikipedia - "Web 2.0"
* You know you're Web 2.0 when... (Dion Hinchcliffe's Web 2.0 Blog)
* What is Web 2.0 (Tim O'Reilly)
* What Web 2.0 means to you
*
Go2Web20.net - The complete Web 2.0 directory - not really very complete as it only contains a handful of travel sites
* Virtual Karma - Complete List of Web 2.0 Applications - a bit more complete because readers can add their own selections in the comments area

I'd like to add an new site I created: http://www.travnotes.com.

It's currently on beta and I'd love to hear from the community...

I'm the creator of a different breed of travel website, called iGuide, the Interactive Travel Guide. The site blends travel information and multimedia content with a full-screen interactive map.

I would be thankful if you took a look and let me know what you think. I'm currently working on spreading word-of mouth about the site, and any help or suggestions you could give me would be appreciated.

For B&B's I have created a simple, yet powerful availability calendar.

The Avvie Calendar was designed for B&B innkeepers who do want an easy way to manage their reservations, but who don't want a full booking on their website. Many innkeepers want to be able to say 'yes' or 'no' to a request, rather than receiving confirmed bookings through an online booking service.
(just think of the bachelors party... most B&B owners are not keen to accept those).

The Avvie Calendar is available separately www.bedandbreakfastcalendar.eu or as apart of a listing on www.bedandbreakfastrooms.com
