Hotels in the network age: an early Friday afternoon thought

Lorcan

Think about conferences in those big rooms with disco balls or chandaliers, with makeshift screens, projectors on trollies, ugly lines of stuck down cable, shiny curtains, and so on.
Or simple things like not having sockets beside desks in the rooms, or taking it up a level, not having worked out network access.
I find myself becoming more aware of the mismatch between what is said at conferences (ubiquitous this, pervasive that) and the hotel environs in which it is being said.
You can probably tell that I have been doing too much travel recently 😉
