Recently I had to suffer the agonizing pain for a 4 hour Internet blackout. We lost all fixed line Internet access at 4pm and mobile data was that congested it wasn’t worth using. This made me realise how much I really on the Internet.
So what do you do in the middle of the work day with no Internet. Well it turns out a digital marketing agency can not do a lot. We couldn’t have a planning meeting as out email was all in GMail so instead we turned to a brainstorming session for what our next technical demonstration project would be (a look what we can do project that is not meant to be anything more).
Now that doesn’t take 4 hours when you can’t see if your idea’s already exist. So how about some time to relax with the girlfriend and watch some TV. Nope all my TV is streamed online and we don’t have cable.
Play games, no, of the 14 games on my phone only 2 don’t require Internet access and they got boring very quickly.
So what exactly did I do for the 4 hours. Well after the kids fell asleep I wrote this blog post as a first draft. Then sat around not doing an awful lot.
