Seems hard to imagine, doesn’t it? A world without the Internet (or as I like to call it, The Dark Ages). A time when the latest technology consisted of a Sony Walkman cassette player and a VHS video recorder. A time of newspapers instead of Google News, and a time of posting letters through a mailbox instead of email.
Although it’s hard to believe, it’s only been less than 20 years since the Internet hit the mainstream, and during that time, the world has irrevocably changed forever. Revolutions have been fought over Facebook and Twitter. Political wars (under the guise of SOPA and CISPA) are still going on. I guess the only people who wouldn’t be sad to see the Internet fail would be the post office.
What do you think the world would be like, without the Internet? Would it be better or worse? Has the Internet improved or worsened the state of the world we live in today? Let us know your views in the comments.
