Majority of Digital Travel Researchers Will Be Mobile by 2015 | Tourism : Network Analysis | Scoop.it
2015 will be the tipping point: Half of digital travel researchers will check out flights, hotels and more not only on a desktop or laptop PC but also (or only) via mobile, eMarketer predicts. And smartphones are more commonly used for both researching and booking travel than tablets.

Could ‘rich data’ become a local commodity?

Could ‘rich data’ become a local commodity? | Tourism : Network Analysis | Scoop.it

Berners-Lee’s address challenged the big data hype and said that it is wasted on its current owners (big companies) who only use it to serve ‘ever more queasy targeted advertising’. It can often feel like we are being spied upon.

 
Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

“If you put together all that data, from my wearable, my house, from other companies like the credit card company and the banks, from all the social networks, I can give my computer a good view of my life, and I can use that. That information is more valuable to me than it is to the cloud.”

UK | Benefit tourism? | Tourism : Network Analysis | Scoop.it

But what’s the evidence for benefit tourism? The answer is that there is very little - and it is an extremely complex picture.

 

Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

“No evidence shows that access to the specific special non-contributory benefit income-based Jobseekers Allowance could be considered a significant driver for EU migrants in the UK.”

Dot City: Welcome to the Age of Virtual Geography

Dot City: Welcome to the Age of Virtual Geography | Tourism : Network Analysis | Scoop.it
Last week's news that London had applied for a .london top level domain name (TLD)—joining a small handful of other cities and regions around the world, including .nyc and .paris—raised the question of how a city might define itself online, where...
Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

In the process, a hotel, restaurant, bar, or bakery; a locksmith, plumber, or architecture office; a government services firm or even a tech blog—all can now territorially mark themselves as being from, and based in, a specific city or region. This has both the positive effect of capturing local clicks and the negative effect of seeming far too insular for others to want to visit them (a plumber.nyc website will all but instantly lose appeal in the eyes of anyone even slightly outside the city).

SoLoMo | One well-informed tourist is worth his weight in gold.

SoLoMo | One well-informed tourist is worth his weight in gold. | Tourism : Network Analysis | Scoop.it
What does SoLoMo mean? Well, it means “Social Local Mobile”. Basically, it’s when a tourist with nothing but a bottle of water and a Smartphone, consults the social networks as soon as he/she arrives in a new location.
Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

SoLoMo first originated with the coining of the term by famous American venture capital investor, John Doerr of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. Then French blogger and entrepreneur Loïc Le Meur made it available to the masses at the LeWeb 11 conference. Above all, SoLoMo is the contraction of three words that are doubtless more familiar: Social, Local and Mobile.

Cities are a new kind of complex system: Part social reactor, part network

Cities are a new kind of complex system: Part social reactor, part network | Tourism : Network Analysis | Scoop.it
Scientists have derived a series of mathematical formulas that describe how cities' properties vary in relation to their population size, and then posits a novel unified, quantitative framework for understanding how cities function and grow. The resulting theoretical framework predicts very closely dozens of statistical relationships observed in thousands of real cities around the world for which reliable data are available.
Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

Cities are also massive social networks, made not so much of people but more precisely of their contacts and interactions. These social interactions happen, in turn, inside other networks -- social, spatial, and infrastructural -- which together allow people, things, and information to meet across urban space.

Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

The new Chinese tourism law, which came into effect on October 1st, 2013, rules out the common practices of forced shopping or involuntary payments for activities outside fixed itineraries for Chinese package tours. Under this business model, tour operators would not only save on the cost of paying tour guides but would often even receive money from the tour guides for the right to earn commissions from the tourists’ shopping and sightseeing.
