Today’s Cool Site of the Day is #MyLifeElsewhere. Have you ever wondered how your life would be if you were born in a different country?

This site’s goal is to help answer this question. MyLifeElsewhere.com works by comparing various statistical data points retrieved from the CIA Factbook, among many other public domain data sources. Using this data, they are able to compare countries around the world in a fun and interesting way.

Try it…I was curious to know how the data aligned between the USA and Iraq. I choose the US. And, hey, at least we use a lot less electricity than Botswana:

Cool Travel Planner Site – WishBeen

 

Today’s Cool Site of the Day is an app called WishBeen. @WishBeen was founded by a group of friends who made travel magazines. The idea of WishBeen was derived from seeing prints held in travelers’ hands as they walked out of airports. The app changes the way travelers share their information and experiences — from print to web.

I immediately saw the value of the app when I searched travel plans for Tuscany Italy and found a couple of interesting, shared (documented) travel experiences. Their slogan: “Practical service for every potential traveler.”

Cool Gadget – WiFi Home Security by Canary

 

Today’s Cool Site of the Day is @Canary, a truly smart home security device. I was introduced to this startup’s cool gadget by @Jason of the fantabulous #ThisWeekInStartups.

Canary puts you in control of home security without expensive sensors, monthly fees etc. It connects to wifi and then the magic begins. Worth a look. (Wonder if this will replace my Dropcam.)

Web Design Inspiration – The Grid

 

Today’s Cool Site of the Day is for anyone who wants to build a website for the first time…with extreme ease and with the aid of artificial intelligence (AI). The Grid is worth checking out even if you’re a Web Viking like myself.

As soon as I saw The Grid’s video, I liked what I saw. This is no ordinary do-it-yourself website builder. The Grid uses artificial intelligence to take everything you add – videos, images, text, urls, etc. – and automatically shapes them into a custom website unique to you. As your needs grow, it evolves with you, effortlessly adapting to your needs. As they say, “this is your personal AI web developer”.
