What makes Beeminder users so honest?
Self-selection! If you were the type who would falsify your data to weasel out of paying what you pledged on your yellow brick road then you would've rolled your eyes and walked away several paragraphs ago.
benito.strauss: I don't know. I tried using a similar trick to get essays written for my Lit classes in college. I'd say that I'd have to get half a page written within the next half hour, or else I'd spend two hours telling myself that I was useless. That didn't work, so I raised the stakes to telling myself I was useless every waking moment. In the end it didn't work for me. YMMV.
