Earlier today I hosted a ‘blab‘ with Hyatt Gold Passport’s Jeff Zidell.
I didn’t know what a blab was, heard it described as like ‘twitter meets vine’ or some such. If you’ve ever seen or done a Google Hangout, it’s a video chat with multiple participants but you have running commentary on the side like twitter. Up to four people at a time can participate live with audio and video that everyone else in the chat can see, while anyone can watch and comment.
The neat thing is that anyone can start a blab, or drop in on one, and there are conversations going on all the time for a variety of interests.
One tidbit that Jeff dropped during our conversation was that cash and points awards should become searchable on Hyatt’s website either sometime during the four quarter of 2015 or first quarter of 2016. That’s actually a big deal for me. I don’t like having to call to make a reservation, but I especially dislike having to call only to find out what I want isn’t available!
I have to hand it specifically to Pizza in Motion who asked the question about cash and points!
