Texting would still be around, so it wouldn't be that bad.
I communicate with people in other countries through the internet, though, so I don't know what I'd do about that.
The thought of hunting down Americans in Japan isn't the most appealing thought.
Aside from meeting people in other countries conveniently, I personally would be able to cope somewhat decently.
Oh God, I just thought about losing all of that information in my email accounts...

So while I was at Dragon*Con this past weekend... I did notice how dependent we all are on technology.

from smart phones, talking on cell phones, watching TV, or reading books on them...
when being asked to "shut off" electronic devices for the 20 minutes before a plan takes off and before landing, you could hear/see/feel the sense of how 'boring' life will seem without technology in the palm of your hand...

for me, i resort to reading a magazine or attempting to sleep.

while I was in the bowels of 5+ hotels with its crazy maze complex system of levels, stairs, and walkways--- my cell reception become intermittent--- there was times i had no service, unable to send or receive text messages --- or get in touch with ppl I knew at the Con--- despite being surrounded by nerds and pretty ladies... i almost had a panic attack.

in other words... if and when technology has a worldwide failure...
I think we're screwed  :P

If the internet died, it would become impossible to live.

If it died we'll be fine.
We'll just watch more TV/radio again.
The internet is still fairly new media it became popular in the mid 90's.

Thanks for zombing up this thread again. its been dead for a few years, now its back alive again. We'll see how long it stays alive.

I'm pretty sure if it died, someone will setup some ad-hoc connections to at least communicate locally. If can grow over time over a wider area and it wouldn't take much effort. Otherwise there's satellite internet and the good old fashioned town hall meeting.

If the internet died, I agree things will be difficult and there will be technological withdrawal for a while and yes business that are reliant on the internet will struggle or die out. 

But humans are resilient and adaptable, so there are people who will be able to pick up their lives and rebuild their lives so they don't need to be quite so reliant on the internet.

Everyone and everything thrives on the internet... except for the Omish... so either we all die or become Omish...

If the Interwebz died, I would probably have no job right now. Working in the IT department requires 'net connection, regardless if you're a tech support or a server admin. Without the 'net, I couldn't possibly be ordering equipment from our seller (phone is fine, but it's also good emailing them about a price quote and a list of things you need), I won't be able to apply security updates for the servers, and my office would go down in flames because people can't print, check their emails, and do VOIP conference calls for their business prospects..

If the internet died, mostall my games would be pointless.  I would have to start a black market business on bootleg animes since you cant stream.

It'd be like the South Park episode where the internet wasn't working and people were traveling to find internet.

If the Interwebz went down, those games that require always-online connection will become obsolete and then developers/publishers who initiated such concept will go down in flames. lol :p
