Starting today, an all-new version of MileageBrain is available for beta testing at www.mileagebrain.com. One thing you’ll notice right away: The new version requires you to create an account. This lays the groundwork for great new features that will allow you to personalize your MileageBrain experience, and helps us provide better support and troubleshooting as well. Your information is private to us, and us only. We won’t share your email address with anyone. Once we’ve had a chance to incorporate your feedback and solidify our product, the site will be moving to a paid model. This will ensure that the site can continue to operate, develop, and grow. We learned A LOT from building the first two versions of MileageBrain. We started out just thinking about technology and design, but along the way found an awesome community of mileage enthusiasts who generously offered a lot of time and feedback to our site. Interacting with all of you has been the most rewarding aspect of working on MileageBrain, and the reason we decided to give it another shot. We’re thankful that you’ve joined us for this ride. Hearing about the trips you found on MileageBrain in 2011 was great, but like a gas-guzzling tri-jet, the old version ultimately proved too expensive to operate and we had to park it in the desert. We went back to the drawing board to invent our Dreamliner - but (just like the real thing) it was harder than we thought and took longer than expected. It’s far from finished, but this is the platform we want to build on moving forward, and it’s time for first flight. Thank you all for your patience and support. We’ll be on Twitter, MilePoint, and our blog looking for your questions and feedback.
