Life without the Internet

History states that the internet was introduced in the 1960’s with the development of the ARPANET Project directed by Robert Taylor and managed by Lawrence Roberts. There have been several developments to what we know as the internet today. The internet brought a lot of change in the world. Trying to imagine a life without it seems impossible.

Communication

Communication without the internet would be interesting. People would go back to letter writing and wait eagerly for the reply. The landlines would still be functional as well as all those telephone booths in the streets.granny going to get email at the post office There would be no Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp or any social media platform. There would be cell phones but not smartphones. To tell someone about your great holiday or that amazing date, you would have to meet up in person.

School and Research

Without the internet, people would actually have to meet for group work and projects. The library would be the place to be if one wanted to pass at school. Since there would be no Google Scholar or any Wikipedia articles to copy and paste from.
The most interesting part of all this is that students at tertiary level would have to revert to handing in 4 paged assignments and not emailing them. I pity the lectures and professors’ who would have to bear with reading all those hard copies.

Games

No internet means no cool games. This translates to no online casino games. The world as we know it would be a very different place.  It would be like going back to the dark ages all over again.
There would be no Punt Casino. Life without the internet would be that devastating!
