it's unfortunate, but I start to believe that, too!

A long time ago I stopped receiving requests for accommodation although my door
was always open. Unfortunately, I think this project pales day by day

I found HC when traveling to Eastern Europe back in 2005.  I am still in contact
with some of my hosts. In fact, we just entertained for a week a fellow from
Glasgow, Scotland.  I don't get many requests in my small town so was delighted
he was not only coming to US but making special plans to come this way.  It was
a great week and he let me know that HC was still alive.  I had thought it died
a slow painful death as there was so little action and I stopped receiving
notification when something sent me a message or request.  Glad to see it is
still here!

I have any number of personal friendships that were started by being a host or a
guest within HC. For those folks it is strictly personal communication now - and
it feels GOOD!
In addition some of those relationships are the result of participation in BeW
and CS.
How about your experiences?

for the exact same reasons why internet hopes in the early 90ies became the
endless void of cat videos and smartphones addicts.

why hospitality gateway to lives would escape the same fate?, just tell me. it
was meant to end up like this, by the fault of those who were too passive to
bend the evolution curve and transmit activity rather than passivity.
period.

Thankyou for sharing such an insightful article. All the points mentioned here
are worth-considering.  An important aspect here can be considered of installing
hotel room safes. Safes contribute to raise the security level and also reduces
the liability claims towards the hotel. It becomes very important that hotel
management gives prime importance to the security of guests and their valuables.
Installing safes of famous brand and of high security like
http://hotelsafes.com/globalfrontopeningdrawersafeplus.html will increase the
customer satisfaction of  the hotel and will help to achieve great star ratings
inturn increasing hotel brand trust.

@giwreh
for one thing, commercial travel has become much cheaper in comparison to
earlier times, particularly group travel. And that has NEVER been to the small,
interesting places without fashionable shops, a bar and big events. I had my
taste of that when I spent Easter in Amsterdam. You practically fell over folks
from all over who were busy taking selfies on a stick... You share your
experience with an old SERVAS friend of mine in Germany who has used HC as a
guest but never had a visitor in his village (19 houses altogether, one daily
bus into the next bigger town). 
In part this development is the result of all the emphasis of the hospex
organizations on "see the world for free" rather than "learn how other folks
live". Eventually folks will come around and rediscover the joys of
down-to-earth travel...

A simple fact like NOT living in a (big) city, makes you (e.g. in my case) a
total no-request-at-all host. 
This was not the case some 20 years ago (like in true old SERVAS times...) when
people still traveled a COUNTRY, instead of a city.... 
That's a massive change in the whole tourism industry !  Everything is about
city-trips now. In the (far) past, people 'travelled' a country in all its
aspects. Cities, towns, villages, nature/landscape...  
It's a big loss from the human viewpoint that this recent tunnel-vision (plane
to some city, plane back home..) replaced massively the adventure of exploring a
country.
