World66, New Travel Resource 'Wiki'
Loyal BizNetTravel Travel Log readers (who are you??) may remember back in August last year we noted a site called WikiTravel. A "wiki" is a strange kind of web site that lets visitors edit the content directly, updapte, correct and ammend text and pictureson web pages. It's the ultimate in the honest policy, but sometimes the results are quite impressive, like the Wikipedia, which is perhaps the best online encyclopedia, the collective work of thousands of volunteer editors.
Well, now there is another do-it-yourself travel guide site following this same model called World66. From what we've seen of it so far, it looks more interesting than WikiTravel. At least it's prettier to look at. There's already a lot of content there, plus they have some fun features such as MyWorld66, which lets you create a colored map of what U.S. states and countries of the world you have visited, which you can then cut and paste as a small amount of code into your own web site, if you have one, like this (which reflects my own world travels):
Bear in mind, the site is still in beta, so it may be a bit flaky in terms of server performance.
