Over dinner in Marrakech this evening, old friend Yossi Vardi noted my earlier entry on what motivates internet use and volunteered his own list of the following three motivations. With tongue planted only lightly in check, Yossi concludes that three desires motivate much of adult life:
First: The desire to live up to our parent’s expectations.
Second: The desire to prove to our children that we are smarter than they think.
Third: The desire to find the food our mother made for us.
