How Travelers Use Smartphones!

Peter Yesawich and I worked together for only about 40 minutes more than 20 years ago.   We  found ourselves immediately on the “same page” but unfortunately no one else in the room was.  Peter and I are both information-driven though we didn’t realize that everyone else thought each participant was expected to only share their “opinions.”
