Meetings & Conventions: Short Cuts October 1998
Short Cuts:WEB SITES WE LIKE
Want a job? ESP Meeting Minders, which places
planners in short- or long-term contract jobs and permanent
positions - has opened shop in cyberspace (www.espmeetingminders.com). Employers fill out a
job-description form; potential employees fill out a profile. ESP
marries job-seekers to the perfect position.
Guidebooks for the money-minded. For 25 years,
Lonely Planet books have been helping intrepid wanderers find their
way around the world (cheaply). Lonely Planet On-Line (www.lonelyplanet.com) brings all that knowledge and much
more to the Web, including the Thorn Tree discussion area where you
can see what other travelers think of your chosen destination.
Comfort foods. We all have memories of hometown
delights we now can't seem to find. The Homesick Gourmet (homesickgourmet.radish.net) helps track them down.
Selections include Sabrett's Hot Dogs from New York City, Cajun
products from Comeaux's in Louisiana and Porkrubbers Barbecue Sauce
from Illinois. Too bad you can't click and sniff.
