This is my personal & professional blog.  It's a place for me to think out loud and learn. I'll sometimes talk about things I don't understand as a way to begin to understand them. I'll often be wrong, short sighted, and unclear. When you see this happening, please point it out!

Startup of the Week: Hipmunk

Hipmunk solves a decade old problem better than I've ever seen it solved before.  The problem?  Finding a flight to take!

The solution is elegantly simple.  Go see for yourself!

Microsoft bought Farecast for >$100M and turned it into Bing Travel Search.  But it doesn't work!  Someone, please buy Hipmunk.  Everyone else, please copy it!

I was about to try Hipmunk, when my friend pointed out that Kayak is superior in so many ways. Hipmunk doesn't even have any of the helpful features that Kayak does.

I made sure to save my friends from using the disaster that is Hipmunk!
