The dive

Until now, Triposo has been just a project on the side for Douwe and me. But today we're taking the dive: Douwe is leaving Google, I'm leaving Oberon.

And we will not be alone at Triposo. Jon Tirsen is another Googler who thinks we're onto something great. And Vincent is another Oberoner joining us. That makes four guys now, committed full time. What can you expect from us?

We will focus on making a world wide travel guide for mobile devices. We aggregate open content from a number of sources and use a clever algorithm to decide what is relevant for you. Wherever you are Triposo will tell you where to go and what to do. We've made a bunch of city guides for iOS and Android based on this approach already and they work pretty well. One of the great things is that they store all the content including the maps on your phone.
We're busy now making complete country guides so we can basically cover the whole planet. Then we'll start adding new functionality to make them even better.

During all of this we'll try and use this blog to share what we're up to. So stay tuned.

Cases when people are leaving Google to start their own projects are more and more common. Author I found to write my thesis paper for me also describes some companies' practice of giving money to employees for their own projects and in case of failure employees just get back to previous responsibility. That experience is valued by companies extremely.
