Ever since the Internet boom took off in the early 1990s, things haven't been same since. People starting getting online at an incredible rate. Others making untold fortunes from the Internet, and then there was social media. A platform like IRC, Facebook, Twitter and so on that lets us converse and stay in touch with friends and family all over the world.
We've gotten so to the point where these are no longer just conveniences, they are now a way of life for many of us. Our Internet addiction has become just that, an hard habit to break that we just simply can't live without. What started out as a cluster of web pages sitting on a server, is now a superhighway of information and resources that few could ever give up and live without.
Gone are the days where we had to use long distance calling, as now we use things like Skype and voice over Internet to make phone calls across country and internationally. Gone are the days where you ran up a $400 phone bill because you spent too long sweet talking your girlfriend who was out of town on a trip.
Today we expect everything at our fingertips. Information on demand, videos on demand, apps on demand, and so on.
The same holds true with our mobile devices, since we now take our beloved conveniences on the road with us. But what if it all came to an end? I mean an abrupt end that had no advance warning. Suddenly the precious Internet we all take for granted has been ripped from you.
Well that is the subject for today's video pick, this time from TheRichest, who has posted another one of their recent video additions that highlight the matter.
Take a look below, and it will give you some food for thought. It's a real eye opener. Special thanks to TheRichest for uploading another one of their great videos and sharing on YouTube for the rest of us.
