Default If there were no internet, what do you think you'd be doing instead?

The Internet affects us in so many ways whether it is work, school, home and leisure time.
It's a tough question, but I think it's fun and interesting to explore (I haven't decided for myself).

If the internet disappeared tomorrow - what would I do?

I come from a time when we functioned just fine without 24/7 internet access. I'd be able to get rid of my smartphone and get a cheaper plan. I'd have to have my friends over to play xbox. I'd have to show people pics of my son instead of putting them on Facebook. I'd have to open a real book/newpaper/magazine.

I'd go outside and sit on my porch swing and drink a beer while watching the traffic go by on a sunday evening.

In other words, life would go on just like normal for me.

You run an hotel? That's pretty cool.

The problem is that we depend heavily on internet and use it for so many different things.

We're spoiled.
