We have turned out to be pretty dependent on the internet, even though most of the time you don’t even think about it. This technology was supposed to make our lives easier, but if you’ve ever experienced an outage you know that work can grind to a halt. Sure, using the internet makes us more productive than our counterparts were in the days of filing cabinets, fax machines, and Rolodexes, but it also means we are totally dependent on electricity and the internet to make the work happen. So what do you do when there’s an internet snow day?
Even something like a solar flare could knock out the internet, and in fact, IoT home appliances caused a major outage last year. There are a lot of dumb reasons why the internet goes down sometimes, and it causes work to grind to a halt for many of us. When you experience an internet outage you have the opportunity to go offline for a while and read a book, do some IRL shopping, or even listen to music that is not online. The sound quality is better, trust me. And you’ve probably forgotten this because it’s just so much easier to listen online.
Even when you can’t look up recipes on Pinterest you can look in actual cookbooks, you know, the ones you have dusty stacks of. Life existed before the internet and it will continue on no matter how long the internet is out. Learn more about how to enjoy an internet snow day from this infographic provided by Cincinnati Bell!
