In the 1980s, the personification of the digital migration was the IBM Personal Computer. Now, nearly 30 years later, we are seeing things never thought possible even by Negroponte. Like the influence of IBM PC in the 80s, the current digital environment could be considered the result of one thing, the World Wide Web, which has knitted the globe together with shared connectivity.
The web is the biggest catalyst for the digital age, but the web without browsers, applications and all manner of digital technology adds no value. This network, along with its enabled user interfaces and processing capability, is referred to as the Digital Mesh. The Digital Mesh surrounds, enables and confounds us, is ever present, growing and increasingly affecting our daily lives. Travelers expect that the Digital Mesh will be available and helpful to them throughout all aspects of their journey, enabling a positive travel experience.
