Travel Trends – Wikitravel, Yapta, StumbleUpon

Wikitravel: Thousands of travelers contributing and building a world-wide travel guide. Based on the same technology, a wiki, that is used on the ‘encyclopedia’ site, Wikipedia.

Yapta: Still in beta testing, Yapta allows users to bookmark airline fares and share them with others. The site will also allow you to bookmark and monitor fares from Southwest and jetBlue, two carriers who notoriously do not participate in 3rd party sites.

StumbleUpon: Download the toolbar to your browser, enter some of your interests and click the ‘SU’ button to find new websites that match your interests. Think of it as ‘channel-surfing’ online.
