Gone are the times we used to visit a neighbor’s to watch TV. Technology is omnipresent in all businesses, most homes so much so that it is now part and parcel of hospitality.
What am I talking about?
Every home today not only has a computer but also internet connectivity.
How many times have you had to tell your guest how to connect to your home network?
So, in the past, when a guest comes home, you are like “Welcome home! Please sit. What can I get for you? Coffee, Juice?”
These days I find myself doing this — “Welcome home! What can I get for you? Coffee, Juice…by the way you can use my computer to check your emails if you want” or better yet “Welcome home! What can I get for you? Coffee, Juice…by the way my wireless network name is whatever, it is an encrypted network…please use password of whateverelse.”
Dont know what you think….I definitely see signs of internet being part of home style hospitality.
