The Pod Hotel Goes Social...

First and foremost I have to say that I have always been impressed by the folks at Organic. They are pretty good at staying on top of their game and I frequently read their blog. Their latest post, "Connecting with the Traveler Staying in the Room Down the Hall" -, really piqued my attention because I am all about all things social.

So check this out, a social network, specific to a hotel, that pre-connects travelers so they can hook up and hang out when staying at The Pod Hotel. Kind of like a really cranked up, or should I say, it is a really cranked up version of a utility like TripIt that makes a lot of sense, IMO.

Think about it, if you're a road warrior you'll certainly know why this makes sense, but if you're heading out on that business trip, all by your lonesome, or perhaps someone else you know is staying at The Pod when you are, but just don't know it, you could totally plan out to meet up, grab a drink, etc.

Brilliant in my mind, yet so simple. Read on, though, as Organic does question how The Pod has spread the word about this social utility that they launched back in January. So, discuss... Neat idea, or not? Neat implementation of a social utility, or not? Giving you any neat ideas for a client project, or not? Just my 2 cents.
