It's time to take control

We've just returned from holiday, and I'd like to thank the following apps for their assistance

  • Google Now
  • Siri
  • Google and apple maps
  • Foodspotting
  • Zaggat
  • Foursquare
  • Kayak
  • Gambletrack

We didn't use a single brand or venues actual website, google now told us opening times, foursquare told us where was popular, foodspotting told us where was tasty, maps told us where to go, and even where the toilets were when we had indoor maps with google in Vegas.

Back home I started applying the same tools, and I've started tidying up the city, I foodspot and rate dishes regularly, helping the local venues that deserve it, I've been checking out google maps and making sure the venues I love are  in the correct place and have the correct information with google's mapmaker. I'm leaving more tips on foursquare. And when I see people from Canada and Australia and India wanting to visit the places and eat the dishes I'm recommending and then weeks later trying them, I realise I'm changing the face of nottingham, one little bit at a time...
