Travel tech tips on NPR (featuring me!)
Austin-based tech journalist Omar Gallaga mentioned me during today’s edition of the National Public Radio (NPR) All Things Considered program All Tech Considered.
Still awaiting my close-up….
The topic is Tech in Travel (here’s a link to the full travel-related NPR broadcast.)
*** The first part of the segment talks about integrating mobile into travel; using cell phones to check into your airline flight plus using a cell phone-displayed bar code in lieu of a boarding pass.
*** The second part of the segment (about 4:00 minutes in) shifts to other helpful travel sites and tools on the Web. That’s where Omar mentions me and I have my moment of fame.
Did you know that there are 106 pages of iPhone applications that are travel-related? That includes one for American Automobile Association (AAA) travel guidance – pretty handy.
For amplifying information, Omar links to all of the sites mentioned in the broadcast in an associated post on the All Tech Considered blog: The Tech of Travel. He included my post on how to find the best hotel deals.
Thanks, Omar and NPR!
