So my question is really how hard would it be for an entity to shut down the internet? Not an outage here or there but take it all the way down. I'm not sure if I'm talking minutes, hours, days, weeks, or permantly, but what kind of risk is there that our mainstay for making money won't be there someday?
Realistically, I know it probably won't happen unless nukes are falling everywhere around the globe, but this is a "what if" question.
Lets get a bit weird and say somebody (NSA, CIA, Al Queda, or some other group with initials we don''t even know about) comes up with some kind of brainwave binaural type of file or cookie that after several logins could actually influence our behavior. (Now I'm taking creative license here and this is just a bit of science fiction on my part, but what if?)
So the U.N-United Nations and NATO and OPEC and all the other powerful world groups with fancy initials, get together and say the Internet must die!
That scenario kinda leaves all of us out on a limb. Nobody including Allen will be making any money on the WSO forum or anywhere else.
I know I'm being extreme here, and only part of it is tongue in cheek, because what happens when some day someday someone decides to pull the switch to off on the Internet?
Some of you will say impossible. Some of you will say probable. But more importantly what DO YOU SAY? Time for warrior forum lurkers to come out and post too.
Most of us probalby take the internet and the Warrior Forum for granted most of the time. Something that is always there and accessible. The day will finally come unfortunately when neither exist. A bummer thought but true.
Back to my original question. Who ultimately can flip the switch on the internet and turn it off? Because whoever can we need to be watching carefully, because it will be hard to do internet marketing without an internet.
Food for thought..
