I grew up without it. Would take some getting use to, but I could do without it.

I can't imagine the internet going away. If Topix went away, I'd probably twitch for a couple of days.

Boy, no Internet would be hard to get used to. When I first read this I thought oh that would be no big deal, and then I thought about how much I really depend on it. Everything from looking up maps and phone numbers to researching. Yikes, I think I would be very lost without it for a while.

It is amazing how fast things progressed in the last 30 yrs. It will be interesting to see what the next 30 yrs hold for us in the future.

You;re right, but then the next thing that will be taken away is the colored tv.

For Work, I would be lost. I remember when the fax machine first came out and how lost I would be without that. Now I can fax from my computer, but mostly scan all of the work documents and email them. It is has become the main communication tool.

I guess I would get some time off, lol. Or just go back to the old fashioned way. I still have the good old fashioned typewriter available, and the fax machine.
