I was a traveler who was also a writer. Then I became a travel writer. Then, to my shock, I became a “woman in tech”.
You see, Solo Traveler started as a simple travel blog. But the more I got into it, the more people started reading it, the more solo travelers joined us in the Solo Travel Society on Facebook, the more technical it all became.
Earlier this month, I was invited to a massive tech conference in Toronto called Collision. I was invited as media but as I saw more and more new tech start-ups and realized that I could not only understand them but have a sense of their potential, especially when they were in the travel space, I slowly realized that I'm not just a travel blogger. I, too, am a woman in tech.
From my experience seeing some of the future of travel technology at Collision, I want to share some of the ideas that I believe have potential. We may be seeing these in the next 6 to 12 months, whether these companies or others ultimately bring them to market successfully.
