...Or don't do what needs to not be done. This business will ship you a video camera with its own internet uplink. It will watch you do or not do things. A predefined consequence is established. For example you can give them $5.000 of which 4.800 will be returned to you only if there is an unbroken video of you over the next 24 hours not, for example, eating too much. Or your drunken ramblings will be sent to your ex unless the video shows you working on a report for a solid hour.
