Mitchell Baker, the head of the non-profit Mozilla said that web users are being drawn into a relationship with the internet which closely resembles the relationship between a gambling addict and slot machines. During the Web Summit conference in Lisbon, she commented on how "...the biggest uses, the biggest companies, the biggest commercial uses, are built-in systems that look like addictions.” She went on to say that "It's disappointing, the practice of 'Come to my site, keep you there, keep clicking, keep spreading this information as fast as possible...'". In her opinion, this is a very similar behaviour to when someone pulls the lever on a slot machine.
