She’s quit her job, purchased a winnebago and coerced five friends to karaoke across the country with her. Wuffaoke Or Bust is a cross-country road trip where six crooners and one pug will live stream their 13-city karaoke tour from San Francisco to Montreal. Think of it as a Rental Car Rally with a talent competition or Bullrun Rally with geeks instead of “petrolsexuals.”The group plans on tweeting, blogging, photo blogging and live streaming the event. If you’d like to plan your own wired road trip, here are a few tools that can help you get started:SHARED TRAVEL PLANNING: Both Tripit and Dopplr are fantastic tools for keeping track of itineraries and sharing travel plans with friends. Meanwhile Gliider is a great tool for saving large blocks of trip-related text and syncing them to offline folders. gliider from jared richardson on Vimeo.DIRECTIONS: TeleNav provides GPS services for a number of mobile devices including the iPhone. The tool offers voice driving directions, spoken address recognition, rerouting for accidents and traffic jams, and locates wireless hotspots, the lowest gas prices, parking lots and ATMs. TomTom for iPhone is also expected to be a great tool as the docking station doubles as a charger. FOOD: Many of us are familiar finding food with the Yelp and Urbanspoon iPhone apps; however, if you want an authentic road trip experience you might want to consult Roadfood. This site lays claim to the “most memorable local eateries along the highways and back roads of America.” We get heart palpitations just looking at the heaping plates of pulled pork, burgers and ribs. Meanwhile, if you’re looking to picnic with something more healthy and sustainable, Local Harvest’s farmer’s market finder coupled with the Locavore iPhone app offer users the chance to find local in-season produce. Locallectual offers a similar tool with their iLocavore app. VIDEOS & PHOTOS: One way to get images up quickly is to stream them directly from your camera. Eye-Fi uses a wireless connection to upload photos and videos directly to your Facebook, YouTube, Flickr and Picassa accounts. If you want to live stream sans touch ups or editing, Eye-Fi is an extremely useful cordless solution. Other mobile streaming video and image options include Qik, Flixwagon, Stickam, Justin.tv and Kyte Producer. GEO-TAGGING: AroundShare is a mobile application that allows users to publish photos to Google Maps. Meanwhile, Flickr’s users can also organize their videos and photos on a map via the site’s geo-tagging features. As for geo-based discovery, Flickr mobile utilizes the locational features of the Android and iPhone and allows members to explore public photos from nearby sites.TRACKING:Google Latitude lets users share their location on a map in real time from their phones or computers. Maps can be embedded in public websites and road trippers appear as moving dots on the map. Imagine your best friend surprising you with Thai food just as you pull up to your hotel. Services like Brightkite and Loopt also broadcast your location; however, these services are based on push notifications rather than real time tracking. TELLING THE STORY: The Whuffaoke group is using Dipity to aggregate their media. The service allows users to upload their Tweets, blog posts and photo sets to a map, time line and flip book interface. The nice thing about this tool is that it can either be embedded (as seen here) or shared via Facebook, Delicious, StumbleUpon, Reddit or Digg. Other tools to aggregate road trip-related media include JS-Kit’s Echo, Disqus or an embedded hashtag feed. whuffaoke on Dipity.

It’s quite encouraging, in light of all the reports of global recessions, slumps, and downturns, to hear from so many people saying that their community is a thriving site for entrepreneurship. You can still send me your recommendations, and I’ll be working my way through them in the coming weeks and months.But we’ll kick things off with Nashville.“The home of country music,” Nashville is known for its large music and tourist industry (although the area’s largest employer is actually the health-care sector). Not surprising, then, the area has a sizable “creative class” as well as a tech-inspired community that drives several events, Ignites, and unconferences like BarCamp Nashville, PodCamp Nashville, and Nashville Startup Weekend.Nashville has a generally favorable climate for small businesses, boasts several co-working spaces, and has numerous colleges – Vanderbilt, Belmont and Lipscomb, for example. There’s a pipeline of talent here although echoing what we hear in a lot of places, there’s always a need for “more engineers.” 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Incubating and Training for Startups and Small BusinessesNashville’s seed-stage microfund Jumpstart Foundry recently made a pivot to become a full-fledged tech business incubator.
