Workshop on Exploring Sustainable Smart Cities:

It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan. But, the term still held a lot of weight.

Here’s an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in The national debate can arguably be summarized by the question: In the past two years, has there been enough change? Has there been too much? Meanwhile, many Americans continue to face change in their homes, bank accounts and jobs. Only time will tell if the latest wave of change Americans voted for in the midterm elections will result in a negative or positive outcome.

Tergiversate This rare word was chosen to represent because it described so much of the world around us.

Ofra Goldstein-Gidoni, Housewives of Japan:

That account was from one of our favourite Couchsurfing hosts in Taipei from our month spent travelling around Taiwan in Coming back to the the hosts location at 3am in the morning drunk and still in full party mode as if they were returning back to a hostel is one of the most common complaints, the complete lack of communication or desire to interact with the host being the second most mentioned by Couchsurfing hosts.

For any of us to exploit that desire to share that accommodating spirit by returning at all hours of the night and day or — based on extremely unfair and hopefully rare circumstances — treating the house as a bar and inviting strangers in is not only costing them personal space, but also breaking with good manners in a strangers house. Another cost to the Couchsurfing hosts is shared between them and their next potential surfer.

Our success or failure at being a good surfer can have an immediate effect on the host and everyone in the Couchsurfing community. The final cost to our host is the worst one in our eyes. It could cost them their being a part of Couchsurfing. Our host in Taipei who only saw their couchsurfer during the walk between the front door and the door of their guest room over a few days really took a chance on hosting us.

Whilst there may be a slim community who really are able to travel the world entirely for free by hitchhiking and depending on the generosity of strangers, most of us are travelling the world or on holiday with a budget to get us from A-to-B, to buy us enough food along the way and to pay for accommodation. With Couchsurfing there may not be rent to pay or a per-person-per-night cost, but you should still be using what money you have to make the best of your Couchsurfing experience, and this can be done in a number of ways.

One of our favourite ways of finding a potential couchhost is to use the Search by Map function on the site. Not only that, but most hosts outside of the center receive far fewer requests and as a consequence are far more likely to respond and accept your well written and personal request.
