"Where I'm Going,” "Why I'm Going” and "When I'm Going.” What's wimgo.com? Why wimgo? Where to begin?
The reasons are plenty. Wimgo is a new Web site from OPUBCO Communications Group that can take you places you never thought you'd be. Just type "wimgo.com” into your Internet browser's address bar, and everything Oklahoma is at your fingertips. Bored? Log on and find out what's happening right now. Planning ahead? Enter any date and get the skinny on concerts, events, games and any other activities you can imagine (and even some you never knew existed).

"The site is so deep. There is so much information on it,” said Elizabeth Taylor, community engagement manager for OPUBCO Communications Group. "You can be as involved as you want to be. If you just want directions to the Ford Center, you can get them. If you want to stay and browse for hours, you can do that, too.”

With wimgo, you no longer have an excuse for being bored. Whether you're interested in live music, theater, art, roller derby or movies, you can find it on wimgo. You can set up your own profile page, upload your own avatar, make comments about upcoming events, mark events that interest you, and see a map to the event locations and restaurants that are near each event.

"You want to find something to do, you can find it here. It's proof that there are a lot of great things to do in Oklahoma no matter what you're interested in,” said Taylor, who writes a wimgo blog that lets users share their feedback. "You don't have to go to a million different Web sites. You can go to one place.”

And for businesses and organizations, wimgo can rock your events. Subscribe free for a "satellite” wimgo on your Web site, and you are instantly connected to thousands of wimgo users. Your calendar information can be fed directly into wimgo and, simultaneously, to hundreds of other Web pages that are also satellite wimgoers.
