Travel in the digital age

11Sep07

An article on the SMH site talks about how location based technology such as GPS, digital walking tours and mobile social networks are all changing the face of tourism and shaping a new breed of interactive explorers.

One of the interesting ideas comes from the ABC (you know that funny station without ads!). They have created free audio tour guides that you can download from their site. Plug in your mp3 player and take their “podtour” for a walk around the city. Perhaps the sort of thing to get people off the computer and into the real world. Link>
