Web-Based Travel Organizer a Good Replacement for Personal Assistant
Gregg Brockaway, the co-founder of Hotwire.com, is launching what he's calling "an intelligent travel organizer with a social twist." TripIt organizes travel articles, street maps and confirmation e-mails for various flights, hotels, and rental cars, and the site's software (called "the Itinerator" -- how cools is that?) can read emails from more than 70 booking sites. It then takes all that information and compiles it into a single master itinerary.
There's no booking feature, but the site acts as a personal secretary for everything else you use to plan your trip. So, while it won't book your flights, it will take your flight information, order it chronologically, and add weather-related information for each destination. Enter an address and it will spit out driving directions and a map.
