The unthinkable – what if the internet went down?

Posted on: June 16th, 2008 | Filed in The lighter side

I am I must confess an unabashed zealot of the internet. It is and has become a ubiquitous and indispensable part of my life as it has for many people, if not the vast majority of people. This situation will only continue and grow in the years to come, especially as the next generation to assume the mantle of this industry, take over the responsibility for assisting in the transaction of real estate.

It is therefore sobering for one lighthearted moment to reflect upon this scary question of what happens …. if the internet suddenly and inexplicably “went down” – from the creators of South Park, I share with you this humorous video.

I have to thank Dave Platter over at Business2 for pointing this out in his post when the web goes down. Equally as posted by Glen Barnes, as a comparable view there is also the video from Onion News Network “Breaking News: All Online Data Lost After Internet Crash” – the comment about blogs is wonderful tongue in cheek!

    Whilst I hope it does not eventuate, I would hope we can all manage to continue and improvise!!
