I just had a very weird travel experience. I was trying to get to Philadelphia's airport from my hotel, where I'd stayed around conducted the emerging technologies workshop. The van service, called Tropiano, ran late. Then later still. When I called to check and complain, the Tropiano dispatcher hollered at me for bothering them.
The van arrived, after I spent close to an hour cooling my heels outside a hotel.
I'm constantly reminded of just how dependent the high-tech world is on these industrial connections, car and highway, which fill the gaps between our internet connections.
I blog this here as a warning or caution. I wonder if any Trop rep will reply, or any other person comment?
