The Acceleration of Addictiveness vs Willpower, Productivity, and Flow - Tantek - http://tantek.com/2011...
The problem is, "saying no" is expensive. It costs you willpower to do so. Explicitly saying no doesn't scale. We need automatic or default ways to "say no". The best word we have for that is "filters". That's the thing about willpower, it's not a collective thing. It's a personal thing. No one is going to give it to you. You have to create it yourself. It's just you. - Thad Kerosky

Do No Evil (August 26, 2010) | Stanford Social Innovation Review - http://www.ssireview.org/article...
Google’s philanthropy, dubbed DotOrg, launched in 2004 with bold ambitions and almost $1 billion in seed funding. But the corporate culture built by engineers proved challenging for the development experts brought in to run DotOrg. Six years later, the philanthropy’s leadership has been replaced and its ambitions have shrunk. - Thad Kerosky
