      Life would suck without computers... but its certainly possible. Although probably not at the current population levels. I don't think the world could sustain its level of population without the services computers provide.

      it would be horribly inconvenient, though.

      actually, i don't know if things like power plants, airports, 911 services, etc. are all controlled by computers, which might be a problem...

      I'm afraid not.  Computers where suppose to make life easier, but they make us work harder.  We rely on computers to much and they are in a lot of stuff.  The faster the computer works the faster we go.  We are a fast generation...........everything moves fast.

    We can.  We did.  For thousands of years.  A computer is a convenience, not a matter of life or death.  If your PC died, you wouldn't have to call an ambulance for a trip to the ER.  We forget that computers are a fairly new part of our everyday lives.  If every PC in the world died tomorrow, we'd be upset.  We'd wail and moan and cry and yeah, it would be a mess. would continue.

    It did before.

    Well being over 40 I remember when I had to rush to the bank on its "late" nite when it was open to 5pm and I could get from work that finished at 4pm.  I remember having to write checks for power, phone and remember to post it in time! I remember having to use a travel agent to book any sort of travel - even  a simple flight. I remember having to ask my bank for a balance and keep a running total in my check book!
    I remember writing letters and hoping for a reply from my mother within 2 weeks I remember paying $5/minute to call home - international
    I love computers!

    Oh yes, and did very well for a very long time.  Of course, there were fewer people then, and fewer transactions.  Even with computers, people seem to always be behind.  I think we depend on them too much.  I used to go out a lot more before I had one. 

    My son says technology is Satan's way of destroying the world.  He may be right.

    Anyone ever watch Dark Angel?  It was set sometime in the future, when all the computers had been fried by a pulsar and the entired world was turned into a third world country.  Do I think that would happen?  No, but as much as we depend on them, and as much of our lives as are stored on them, if every computer ceased to work, what would we do?

    All I can say is keep your checkbook balanced, because you might just have to prove how much you have one day.

    Seemingly not. I for one spend about 15 hours a day 7 days a week at computer currently. But human being can adapt to everything or almost everything, and if computers are taken from us one day - we will evolve big_smile

    Sure I like being able to find information fast and meeting people online is kewl.

    But living with-out a computer when I travel is so great  No EMRs No subliminal crap
    pop ups etc etc.

    What the hell is so great about this technology?   I tell my friends that if this box doesnt help me create the lifestyle I desire I will throw it away because is pretty much useless to me.

    I grew up with out a cell phone they didnt have them When I was in college the prof. tried to make me learn punch cards to become a computer programmer. Even I knew that was a joke!

    I spend weeks with-out loging on when I am surfing some remote place. I dont miss it when I come back to it it takes days to clear the crap from the 50 email accounts I have.

    Living with out computers is much better!

    Well I must say, I have lost a computer before, to a virus. It got right into the system registry files and I had no choice but to reformat and lose all my information. The windows product key sticker had been removed from the side, so the operating system was gone. I still have the disk, but without a product key you can only use the computer for 30 days.

    With that computer I lost gigs of precious music I've not yet recovered, an operating system, $2000 of software and the receipt to a recently-renewed subscription to Zone Alarm Pro. I was absolutely pissed. Therefore, my argument is that I cannot live without a computer, and if it did die, yes, I would call an ambulance =]

    Is it strange that a hub about this topic already exist ? … all-asleep

    The problem would not to live without computers, but to manage the transition from computers aided life to old-fasion live.

    Transitions... always transitions.

    In my case, and because of my job. I can't live without it. It is very essential to my life because I earn a living from it. I don't know with other people but for me it's really important and can't live without it. Well aside from the fact that people live thousands of years ago without computers, but now on this new generation I think some people can't survive without it.  smile

    You've also got to think about the major corporations or governments with this one.

    I think that if all the computers were to die at once, we'd be screwed.

    Most of what you're discussing is internet related - and you don't need to go back 1000s of years to see no internet, try 10-15 years,

    Only 30 years ago - no internet, no emails, no cellphones, no sharing pictures, no scanners.

    Yet the sixties were an absolute blast!!

    Since I make my living selling stuff online, I would be in search of a new career. So no I can't live without computers - nor would I want to.

    But I do have a wonderful and full life, in addition to my online life. One does not exclude the other.
