How Booking.com manipulates you

Interesting read about how booking.com manipulates you using 'dark patterns'. Not to stop you using booking.com. These big data companies are hard to ignore these days, as business to promote your Bed and Breakfast in Amsterdam or as the customer and writer concludes: "Frankly, I don’t think I am going to stop using Booking.com. I am not aware of any other service with a comparable number of properties and reviews."

Nieuwe website

Nog een weekje werk en dan gaat deze nieuwe website online. Na een paar jaar plezier gehad te hebben van onze huidige website is het tijd voor een meer 'mobile friendly' website. Tevens was het een mooie gelegenheid de boel weer eens op te schonen. Afscheid nemen van de oude website is dus niet lastig, maar als verzamelaars toch nog even een afbeelding van wat binnenkort de oude webiste is.

10 Little Ducklings

A few days ago the eggs of the duck nesting outside room 1 came alive and 12 hours later 10 little ducklings stayed close to mama duck. All 10 are still alive; the fence we created so they don't fall into the canal seems to work :)
