  • Main topic

    • Interview with Paul Hallett, CEO and Natalia Palascios, VP of Marketing of Schmap.com. We discuss Schmap.com, the online and desktop travel guide, Schmaplets.com, their user augmented companion site, and the soon to be released Schmap embeddable widgets (at schmap.com/widgets). Unfortunately, there were audio issues after the first 10 minutes so I had trim the interview down to the first half, but it offers a great overview of Schmaps inception and utility.
