The Tetris effect (also known as Tetris Syndrome) occurs when people devote so much time and attention to an activity that it begins to pattern their thoughts, mental images, and dreams. It is named after the video game .
The Pinocchio paradox arises when Pinocchio says "My nose grows now" and is a version of the liar paradox. The liar paradox is defined in philosophy and logic as the statement "This sentence is false." Any attempts to assign a classical binary truth value to this statement leads to a contradiction, or paradox.
The Experience Machine or Pleasure Machine is a thought experiment put forward by philosopher Robert Nozick in his 1974 book Anarchy, State, and Utopia . It is one of the best known attempts to refute ethical hedonism, and does so by imagining a choice between everyday reality and an apparently preferable simulated reality.
The article states that the internet becomes accessible to an additional 9% of the worlds population every year. If the rate of growth stays steady, it will (only) take 13 years for the whole world to have internet. It will be interesting to watch how these numbers change with and without Zuckerberg's help.

Often economic growth in rich countries perpetuate exploitation in poorer ones. Conversely - and often simultaneously - growth has a trickle down effect, which creates an economic structure that directly feeds poorer countries. Charity (most of the time) doesn't create a structure, it just fixes specific problems one time. Mass produced culture, although it is appalling to most with the sensibilities that are potentially moved by this sort of argument, is a large percentage of GDP. In truth any art that has economic value, creates a trickle down effect through it's (modest) contributions to the GDP. This doesn't constitute a defense to any artist who has "artistic integrity" which usually means reducing his ability to contribute to Charity or to the GDP.
The arguments in the linked articles equally apply to enviromental impact.
