For Evil? For Awesome?

I just read Kathy Sierra’s post on Cognitive Processing and Willpower: Your App Makes me Fat. And now I feel stuck between guilt and satisfaction over my other post today: Day 14 – Blatant Bribery.

Am I exploiting the depleting effects of the cognitive processing inherent in IT work to seduce co-workers into eating unwanted chocolates and chips?

Or am I just short-circuiting the need for willpower by seducing them with chocolates and chips thereby paving a clear path towards productivity?

Is this good?

Is this evil?

I just don’t know… (go read her article though, the first half is very interesting food for thought)
