What would our lives be like without the internet? Today, there was about 50 minutes of internet « outage » at one of the country’s major telephone operators.
As I said, the outage itself lasted only about 50 minutes. But a colleague of mine got on the phone with the phone company’s customer service, and they announced that the outage would take two hours to resolve.
I immediately thought: what am I going to do for two hours without Internet? The truth is that I have built a whole world for myself around the Internet and screens, and it is hard to imagine living without it.
At the same time, I am aware of that. What you might call addiction. The only thing I’m doing to overcome it is a quarterly cure; which each time proves to me that it’s possible to limit my use of the Internet.
