@jeffsonstein Or, “railroads”, “fiber”, what is wrong with you people? ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein There’s a company here in AU doing the same, buying fibre rights from the railways, independently of the NBN etc.

via Janetter for Mac

@jeffsonstein I’m thinking Kansas City (for Google Fiber), Chattanooga TN, and Lafayetteville LA, and whatever else.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein And so much of the transcontinental fibre (fiber) follows the rail routes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Or “gigafiber”, as you might spell it. (Looks weird to me.)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Actually I’m formulating that as a plan. Not to drive, because I don’t, but to Amtrak it through the gigafibre cities.

@ApostrophePong I can say it’s my patch when there’s a barman who knows how I like my martinis, right? (OK, throw stones now.)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong OK, OK, so I know SFO is better than DC, I can’t whinge. SFO is now the city I know best outside AU. “My patch”, even.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong It’s better to move a container full of slabs of beer than trying to replicate the production process.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong Yeah there’s issues to do with maintaining consistency with a smaller-scale brewery when there’s a global brand. Chemistry.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong But then again I’ve been to San Francisco quite a few times now, and to San Jose several times, and I know the Valley well.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong I’m envious ‘cos you’ve been on the US east coast. I haven’t been anywhere further east than Las Vegas.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong I’m kinda spoilt ‘cos I’ve been visiting the US at least twice a year and have had the chance to hang around.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong Yes, I agree. There’s smaller-scale American ales that are closer to Coopers Pale Ale, but you won’t get them outside US.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong Do you know whether you’re getting Sierra Nevada direct or made under license?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong It’s one of the beers I drink when in the US, but I must admit that the craft beer think is actually working in America.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong Sierra Nevada beer is everywhere now. Like herpes. But slightly more tasty.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to ApostrophePong

@petercoffee We must talk some time about this magic word “disruptive”. But it’s red wine time in AU, so I’ll butt out.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to petercoffee

@j_s_n_d Well that the professionalism in it, right? Knowing how to distill the whole thing to twonutes when we’d take ten.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to j_s_n_d

@jonoabroad They won’t. Because they are stupid and a waste of good carbon atoms.

@petercoffee @briansolis I think what you mean is that most businesses don’t understand the difference between bullshit and actual reality.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to petercoffee

Well fuck you and your so-called “facts”.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@TheFailedProjek Ah yes of course. Well I’ll add that to the list of topics. I should play the game harder, I sometimes think.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheFailedProjek

@dain_ger I doubt it. The “influencer” thing is all bullshit anyway. This is just standard loyalty scheme stuff.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dain_ger

@jonoabroad That said, he’s a single man. For a family, there are different requirements. But I’m happy to explain further, wine or not.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad No, I’ve spoken with quite a few hotel managers about the broad principles. It works.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@NewtonMark It soon builds up, right? Particularly in this technology industry.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

@jonoabroad Yep, that’s him. Search his name and “living in hotels” to find many references.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@skwashd Well your travel schedule is insane, yes, but it doesn’t take much to differentiate from the once-a-year traveller.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to skwashd

@jonoabroad @JonoH And a 6pm checkout? Just tell the latecomer proles tomorrow their room isn’t ready yet and give ‘em a coffee.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad @JonoH A wine they have for $48 on the menu, maybe $28 at a discount store, costs the hotel in bulk maybe $6.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad @JonoH That’s exactly how it works, yes. The more you fill the hotel with regulars, the less, far less, you spend on promotion.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

It’s just a matter of understanding how the accommodation industry works and, in many ways, paying attention to @paulcarr’s writing on same.

via Janetter for Mac

For little more than a squalid 2.5-star shithole I get a 4.5-star executive suite with 6pm checkout tomorrow, free internets and free wine.

via Janetter for Mac

I must write a thing some time about how to turn your frequent travel on other people’s tab into benefits for when you’re paying yourself.

via Janetter for Mac

@jonoabroad Yeah, I have things to do early and I knew the train trip etc would prevent an early start. And I found an excellent deal.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@JonoH Oh absolutely. The loyalty scheme keeps me in that system, but this hotel’s personal service is what I choose them when I can.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JonoH

@JonoH Exactly that. The duty manager hears my name being said aloud as I check in, and the service escalates another notch again.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JonoH

@JonoH Oh I don’t peer behind the curtain. I just know that I have been a good customer here in recent years and they take care of me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JonoH

@nancycato1 By a young Japanese woman, actually. So probably not Pauline.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nancycato1

Well this hotel’s CRM system seems to be operating correctly. Also, institutional memory FTW.
