I am just thinking about live without internet, computers. It is hard to imagine for me know, because such stuff is my daily need, and without them I can do nothing, all my work depends on them. If there is some problem with internet connection I am lost, and expecially such problem happens when I really need to be connected. I think it is not only me who really need internet and computer for his or her life. What do you think about it? It is possible for you to live without internet or computer?

Dear Ernnesto! Twenty years back there were no Computers and no Internets like we are having with us! Before that we lived comfortably an used to enjoy life then also! People from my time will agree wit me that internet or computers have just added up the speed to the life and made the life bit easier but it is not that without these things one can't live! Yes there are many advantages we have because of the internet. We have access to the Data bank in any field of life on our finger tips!The communication has become very fast.The GPS system is a big boon for us today with so many very useful applications! Thus internet has brought a big revolution in our life! But if we see to the other side of the coin, we find some interesting things! In fact because of the internet life has become more faster , mechanical and more materialistic! There is hardly any role for emotions in one's life now with the internet. People have become robot like they also started enacted like computers and their thoughts have become more logical and mechanical without much of love and affection! Before the internet, we used to ave letters as the main mode of communication and each letter written was full of emotions, affection and feelings! Letter writing used to a big art then! But now it has been almost vanished into the thin air! In absence of internet people used to visit libraries and used to borrow books from there and read them with immense interest, which unfortunately today the modern youth seldom thinks to undertake! In absence of internet Theatre, Dramas and movies were the main source of entertainment and there have been bi artists in the past in these fields who are still remained as legends in spite of the fact that they are no more with us! Thus entertainment in these forms had its own importance then in our life! Thus if I start quoting the examples I can write a volume! In nut shell all I can say is that in absence of the internet also the World was very beautiful and today I have accepted and enjoy it as a evolutionary change in the life which is inevitable for the progress! I appreciate the internet and its uses but don't agree to the statement that I can't imagine life without it, as I have already had it and I feel that was more sweeter than the present one! Thanks for the discussion! I liked participating in it!

I used to live with out computers and I could.I grew up with out computers.Those are the days when people took care of things they had to do.Now people put things off because they're hooked on the internet.People should go outside and get some fresh air once in awhile.I mean the internet made many people lazy,they can order food, shop chat,all with out leaving their house.Whats a life living indoors?

hm, i agree with you. Though it is difficult to be without internet and computers , however, we need to explore the beauty of nature and explore it. i make a deliberate attempt to visit places between the mountain and ranges (once in a while) where net connectivity is a problem ,just to be with my own self and meditate. rejuvenate yourself , take a breather and get back to life...:)

I'm not saying computers are bad,but many people seem to become a hermit,because it allows everything to be done by sitting at your computer.I grew up in the 1980's. Life seemed pretty simple then. People did spend alot time outside.It's just better for people to get out. I usually take outdoor breaks from using my pc,I have to.

Good day to you Ernnesto, With reference to your main topic, honestly, I cannot live without any of those you have mentioned. As my life will not be full complete if there is no computer and internet running within. I am working via online so internet facility is very much important to me. As well as the computer, since this the main machine that I need to do my task and job everyday. Due to these reasons, I can say straight away that I cannot really live in a life without an internet and computer working at my side.

I would miss it, especially Facebook, Twitter, and Reditt (my main social networks). It would hard to write without my Dragon Naturally Speaking. I'd miss posting on my websites, which mean no $ for me. It would be hard, but possible.

no i can't imagine it. all our reports are on our PC and we do the reporting via email so that will be hard for us. computer and internet are powerful tools for communication and our work so living without them means being back to basic, from computations to writing and reporting, to snail mail. can't imagine this thing will happen again.

I think that it would be difficult for me to live without internet and computers. I can't really imagine being without them, mainly because I'm so used to having them around.

yeah, its not really that hard. If you really have that much of a problem living without them then you have an addiction problem.

Well, first of all, if there weren't any computers, we weren't having any contact now. So the computer and Internet have brought a new way to communicate to each other in the world. It is a thing which has been spread more and more every day. Now Internet has became part of our lives. I think it will increase this participation in the future. Moreover I think humanity could live without computers and Internet if we should come to this situation.
