My good friend Chuck from VegasTripping.com has launched his new Macau site, MacauTripping.com.
This is a great addition to the Macau Web scene and a place I'll use for info constantly - at least until RateMacau.com goes live.
Good work Chuck!

Are you serious about RateMacau.com ?
I'm not sure. I registered the domain name. I have the tech to do it. I'm seriously considering it but I haven't started building it.
Have you considered taking your online content and creating a paper-based guide? The reason I ask is in yesterday's LA Times I read an article about a woman in Pasadena who self-published a book called "Hometown Pasadena." There are many Vegas guides out there but some of the info here is unique. With on-demand publishing it is cheap to develop. (Note: I'm not a publisher or anything, I just figure it might be an idea to consider as a way to further monetize content you already have.)
I've considered a ton of options - the basic fact is that I'd like to do more with the content I have - to help more people find interesting info, etc... I've got quite a database of ratings, reviews and the tons of stuff from the Q&A section on RateVegas.com, not to mention all the stuff here and the thousands of photos. It's a huge ton of Vegas content.
What you suggest sounds really interesting. To be realistic, I'd really need to either partner with someone or hire an assistant to get things organized - the time factor is typically what gets me from doing something. I've got so many things in the fire, only the most critical seem to make it to fruition.
With technology advancing, I'd like to re-purpose the content as much as possible to make the best use of it.
One thing that we've considered is making our technology available to third parties to integrate with their sites...
Basically, our ratings and review tech, along with our content and photos, could be used on other sites with proper licensing. That would allow sites that don't have the ability/desire to build their own tech to use this sorta stuff on their own sites.
