The Digital Mesh from Rome with Love

A vacation is indeed an incredible luxury, a thing once taken only by the elite classes and not even coined as a concept until around the time of the Norman Conquest. Of course these days you are hard pressed to book anything for your vacation now matter how big or small without the use of the Internet. The Internet has long ago replaced travel agents and the world seems to be more often than not, using sharing economy style bookings on sites such as Air BnB. With every very new airline booking, accommodation reservation, or online communiqué post, you will be asked endlessly to log in and create a new account. I have been noticing that more and more often I am being given the option to log on via another service, usually Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, or LinkedIn. In fact on some applications it is now difficult to log in WITHOUT going through another site, usually a social media service.
