The hotel should know that I am "Brian Aker"

It should be able to tell me if other friends are booked here, and that I am happy for them to know about me being here.

It should know that I want a non-smoking room.

It should know that I do not want the newspaper.

Most importantly?

It should know that I do not want starch put in my laundry.

Grrrrr.....

This last may be a computationally hard problem. Or at least computationally stiff.

We are not too far off from a world where our social network is known.

The hotel here has me as a member... they could collect each time I say "no starch" and make the connection.

So I think it is doable :)

Privacy be damned!

maybe when you say "no starch, press" they think you're trying to say you're *from* No Starch Press, and then do whatever the heck they want with your clothes?
