"And there are no diamonds in the mine"

I had decided that it was high time I stopped writing about the Conference, but those wonderful people at Expedia have tempted me into one last hurrah.

Having changed my plans and gone to Blackpool on Saturday rather than Sunday, I booked a hotel room just for Saturday night via Expedia, and they have just e-mailed me this:


Subject: Book your car and activities in Blackpool



"
Dear William (that's what my nearest and dearest call me, rather than Croydonian)



It's always good to find a great travel deal and we're really pleased you decided to book your trip with Expedia.co.uk. But now you've taken care of your accommodation, did you know you can arrange your car hire and holiday activities with us as well?"

Yup, great piece of data mining and subsequent sending of an automated e-mail, folks.



(With thanks to Laughing Len for the headline)
