    What if the Internet just stopped working? How would that affect your life? It's not likely that it'll happen but it's a what if question.

    then google will sponsor the fix :p.
    But if it happens for real I'll have to escape to the tallest mountains because that means our planet has been filled with lava resulting from the meteors that hit the earth.

    If the Internet stopped working, hmm, I'd be reading more books, if have 90% more free time as I wouldn't be on here:)
    my IT career would struggle.
    i think I'd probably try and invent some sort of email to physical mail plugin for Exchange, that would probably sell well in a world without Internet.

    Look at what happened in estonia in 2007 and then imagine that on a global scale with downtime of everything. Answer is quite simple:

    Complete chaos.

    Search for and read:
    The World of Tomorrow (If The Internet Disappeared Today) on Cr-A-cked.

    Hilarious.

    Seriously though? Lots of people would get laid off. GDPs worldwide
    would go down if email is gone as well. More wars perhaps because
    people wouldn't get the chance to interact with each other so easily.

    Um, massive losses in the video game industry. WoW and Starcraft 2
    related disorders. Oh, and crime rates would go up maybe? Perhaps
    more people would sign up for the armed forces (bored COD players).
