    The people who work at the Information Call Centres. Why call someone, when you have Google?

    Employment agencies, dating/matchmaking, psychics, schools...?  Just off the top of my head there.

      Being a psychic is an actual job?

      I do believe colleges will be replaced with online classes.

    Libraries is what jumped to mind. With search engines you can find anything out, with eBay and Amazon you can often purchase books for the cost you might spend in gas commuting, and then you have your .edu sites for references in school.

      Yes and I believe a lot of stores clerks jobs where eliminated because of the internet.  I know CompUSA the computer store in my area closed its doors and is now online.

      Good point, would be cheaper for popular stores to close their brick and motor locations if they can get the same sales online. Save on rent, employees, etc.

    Libraries and librarians definately.  With virtually everything accessable via the internet there is no need for people to go to the library anymore.  I think that's sad because there is nothing like holding a book in your hands.
