Internet Threats Apocalypse Survivalism


In all seriousness and with the internet becoming intertwined with just about everything, e.g., military infrastructure, electrical power infrastructure, water supply infrastructure, transportation infrastructure, houses, cars, appliances, other stuff we don't even know about; all of it interconnected and just waiting for a cascade collapse; sooner or later an internet-originated apocalypse is going to come along. Technology always fails, that's why there are repairmen. And in this case, there are also the hacking/malware/viruses continuing onslaught. It really is just a matter of time.

The event will be destructive enough to disrupt society for months, including shortages of food and other necessities. It's not a case of if; it is only a case of when. It will probably happen somewhere between 10 to 20 years from now; the internet still needs to get more intertwined first. Then again, the societal infrastructure is already pretty much dependent on the internet in more ways than we can count. Wouldn't hurt to have the same survival attitude as was prevalent during the cold war scare of the Cuban missile crisis of 1962.

As opposed to making this just another article with a list of survival kit necessities, here is a list of three government or organization resources that will tell you everything you need to know. Needless to say, the three sites duplicate each other somewhat.

URLs go to the specific, relevant pages. None address the internet vulnerability issue directly, but the lists of needed supplies would certainly be the same. Besides, what with all the other potential disasters out their, both man-made and nature; having a survival kit is not a bad idea.
