travList: list your travels


Welcome to travList, a site to help you keep track of all your travels. Where you’ve been, where you’re going. When you were there, comments, reviews, Flickr photos, whatever. And then, once you’ve got it all entered, do stuff with it. I created this for myself, but I figure other people might find it useful. Who knows?

I have used quite a few task list/scheduling services in the last few years. I most recently had found a happy home with Voo2Doo and then I found another.

I can’t remember how I stumbled on RTM but something drew me to it. I love the simple clean interface. I also like that notifications can reach you in a myriad of ways (IM, E-mail, Text message).

And of course having the ability to email task in to the list in a fairly simple way is ver appealing.

If you are in need of a well rounded online task manager then head over and check it out.

Remember The Milk – About Remember The Milk

About Remember The Milk Managing to-do lists is generally not a fun way to spend your time. We created Remember The Milk so that you no longer have to write your to-do lists on sticky notes, whiteboards, random scraps of paper, or the back of your hand. We began work on Remember The Milk in August 2004. What started as a simple idea soon became a huge web application with every feature imaginable (yes, there’s a reason why this took more than a year to finish). Remember The Milk was created by a two people and one stuffed monkey. You can read more about the team.

Yet another wonderful Web 2.0 tool I have come to love. This of course is a little more geeky than some others.

If you love books like me then this is perfect for you. The service is an excellent blend of utilitarian usefulness and web 2.0 community goodness.

In fact I have added a page here that links to my library, feel free to search around!

Tips & Tricks

Holiday Newsletters Made Simple.

Boy, the holidays come faster and faster every year, don’t they? I bet you’d barely digested that Thanksgiving turkey before the first Christmas card arrived in your mailbox. And now there’s only a few days left of the year and you haven’t even sent out your annual family newsletter! Whatever will you do!?

Newsletter2Have no fear, Backpack is near! In a few minutes you can easily create a quick and simple family newsletter to share with all your friends and family, complete with photos and notes that explain just what’s been keeping you so busy this year.

Use Textile markups to insert images into your header body and the notes section, and you can even upload a copy of the newsletter in a Word format for those friends of yours who’d like to hang it on their fridge. Share the URL publicly or keep it private by inviting people to start a Backpack page of their own.

Who says the holidays have to be stressful and tedious? Backpack makes sending out your newsletters easy and fun. And don’t forget to start a Tada list to keep track of all your card recipients!

A big special thanks to our friend Melissa Summers for the pictures she let us borrow of her beautiful family. There’s one holiday newsletter I can’t wait to get!
