that tells me to stretch or move
or have tea every 20 minutes...
I am not proud of this.
But we'll see how it works
Maybe it will have some good ideas.
You ever read that story 'Quitters Inc.' by Stephen King?
It's about a guy who is talked into joining a kind of
(what turns out to be) a efficiently ruthless control
agency that exacts horrible punishments on him
if they catch him smoking. And of course they've
got cameras and investigators all over the place.
They torture his wife cuz they catch him sneaking a
cigarette and then send him a bill for the electricity used.
Somehow the little program makes me think of that.
How much of ourselves do we give over to machines
because we can't control our own selves?
