A Socially Responsible Social Network

Say what?

If you've got time in your day to take quizzes to find out what city, 80's rock star or sea animal you are, you've got time to check out ivili.

Ivili is a new website where people can share their experiences of environmental technologies and sustainable solutions with one another. The aim is to bring these solutions to a wider audience so people can learn from one another and improve their own businesses and livelihoods.

The plan is for an evergrowing and easily searchable database of these video clips (like on youtube) profiling success stories from all over the world. To that end, I'm posting my videos from Africa and plan to get even more of them edited and posted.

I'm meeting with the founder, Jeremy Smith, next week and expect to have more information and inspiration for you then. In the meantime, please explore the site, start asking and answering people's questions, and join in creating the site along with Jeremy and all the other members!

BTW - You are Dallas, Simon LeBon and a manatee. Now that you know that time saving information, you can spend the next 10 minutes on ivili!

We're Number One!

Wahoo, we're number one!! But who exactly is "we", you're wondering?

City Segway Tours of San Francisco, of course.

We've been listed as the #1 attraction in San Francisco on Trip Advisor! That's #1 out of 622, thank you very much. Take THAT Alcatraz!! (You too, Golden Gate Bridge.)

You can read the reviews, or if you'd rather just read what they're saying about yours truly... let me help you out:

"My husband and I took the City Segway Tour with Kristian (Miss K) the first morning we were in the city. Not only was she energetic, super fun and very knowledgeable about the city, but she also took amazing pictures!"

"Kristian, was extremely knowledgeable and fun to listen to as she told us stories about everything we were looking at."

"Kristian, our guide, was exceptional!"

"Kristian was a fun and informative tour guide who made us feel safe rolling around the roads of SF (and she knows how to take great pictures!)"

"Miss K, our tourguide, was great fun. She knew lots about the city, made sure everyone was having a good time and catered to all our needs. She also let us play about on the Segways in a safe area which was interesting to say the least!"

Oh, stop.

No, don't!! I do admit, I tell people if they had a good time on the tour and found us on Trip Advisor, they should take a moment to pay it forward. The fact that they also want to rave about their guide... well, it's enough to make a guide blush and then post a self-congratulatory blog about it!

So, if you've got people visiting you this summer or you're planning on a stay-cation this year... why not make a segway tour a part of it? You'll be glad you did!
