  • wrld.li [2019]*: a closed community travel recommendation site. get the password from a friend as a thank-you for a good deed; share what you know for others. designed to remain limited in size, it is an experiment in sharing trust - not growing a userabse. it's a good place to gift the password to make a reservation at that unlabeled restaurant in San Miguel de Allende, or the cell phone number of your favorite tour guide in northern Ethiopia.
