Avoiding a Net Apocalypse

Posted by Michael Pinto on Apr 24, 2010 in Tech |

This interesting video features David Eagleman giving a chat on what do if the internet were to go down. It’s part of a larger lecture on Six Steps to Avert the Collapse of Civilization. At first this concept seems laughable to me because the internet as we know it was originally designed by the military (arpanet) to survive multiple points of failure. However after having seen events like 9/11, Katrina and now the chaos caused by a single volcano bringing Europe to a standstill the notion of war or global power outages seems less absurd.
