Idea: Anti-procrastination shock collar
« on: October 01, 2018, 03:53:25 PM »
Make a shock collar where if you set it into "I should be working mode", it shocks you for:

    Every page your web browser loads
    Every message you send on IRC
    Whenever you open an IRC window that's not the status window, and once every 30 seconds until you go back to the status window

I like this idea, but what if I do web development and need to open pages in my browser in order to get work done?

There can be a whitelist of non-shockable URL regex's.

Sounds good. Have you ever heard of Pavlok? It's a bracelet that shocks you and hooks up to an app https://pavlok.com/

i bought a used one from my friend who also didn't like it anymore.  I stopped liking it probably the second time it shocked me.  It is still a good emergency alarm clock though for when you absolutely must wake up

Alternate idea: Accept laziness as a normal part of the human condition?

People should strive for laziness? That is the purpose of automation?

think of the economic loss though
think of Li Ziqi planting cotton to knit her grandmother a warm sweater for winter.
