An Open Letter to Hoteliers Worldwide

Evolving Web

Wifi : If I can get a day’s worth of wifi free, simply for the price of a coffee, why then do you insist on charging me to use your wifi after I’ve already paid you hundreds or even thousands of dollars?

I would venture a guess that an increasing number of guests use wifi more than than they turn on the television (and certainly more than use the pool). Hoteliers: Please.

San Francisco

Michael Sampson - Currents

We made good use of the collaboration and communication tools available to us to bridge the geographical divide, including a Surface Hub at Silverside HQ in Rotterdam, a couple of Surface Pro 4’s in San Francisco, and Skype for Business. We had some teething problems over the days, mostly due to poor WiFi in the hotel, but on the whole it did actually work. Last month I flew to San Francisco for a week of meetings.
