The utterly complicated procedure for acquiring a bottle of water at a hotel

Last night I wanted a bottle of sparkling water (I like the bubbles). I went down to the Hotel bar to get one — and I documented the ridiculously complicated experience in the context of today’s connected environment.

We’re going to Paris, Berlin, Munich, Barcelona, Marseille, Warsaw, Prague… And Glasgow

That’s the plan, anyway. Over the next few months I’m aiming taking the MIR Show crew to various cities across Europe to track what’s moving in the industry on a localised basis. We plan to do some mini Unlimited Drinks in each city along with an array of interviews and editorial pieces (both video, audio […]
