Discipline as a Service

In my post on Ghetto Wifi (June 2010), I mentioned a cafe in East London that provided free coffee, free biscuits and free wifi, and charged customers for the length of time they occupied the table.

A cafe has just opened in Tokyo for writers, which charges people for procrastination. You can’t leave until you have completed the writing task you declared when you arrived.
