Internet Threats Apocalypse Survivalism


What with the internet being intertwined with just about everything, e.g., military infrastructure, electrical power infrastructure, water supply infrastructure, transportation infrastructure, houses, cars, appliances, and other networks 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 is also the neverending hacking/malware/viruses 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 is not a case of if; it is only a case of when. It will probably happen sometime within the next 10 to 20 years. 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; though one can probably skip the bomb shelter aspect, most of us don't have the resources to do that anyway.

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.
