What would happen if internet was to suddenly disappear from the world?

Knowing what we know and given the life habits we've taken thanks to it, what do you think would happen?

I would suddenly have a life again. My father refers to the internet as WWW (World Wide Waste of Time).

I would definitely miss it, but it would simply cause me to shift my focus to my other numerous favorite activities such as cross stitch, gardening, etc. I would also miss the ability to get instant news - that would probably be the biggest issue for me.

Not only would a vast number of people suddenly find themselves without their favourite pastime, but it would also have a great impact on many businesses. Online shopping has become big business and many companies are online only, so there would be a lot of unhappy people.
