One earthquake kills the Internet

An earthquake in Taiwan reminded us of how fragile we are. Today most international websites were inaccessible because internet cables under the sea were disrupted. I’m even considering myself lucky that somehow I managed to access my website and post this at home.
I’m writing this quickly in case we get cut off again. Makes me feel that we’re isolated from the rest of the (unaffected) world.

    Let’s not forget about the victims of the earthquake whose house being levelled, whose loved ones being buried under tons of rubbles.
    Our lost of connection to the cyber-world is nothing as compare to theirs

    Truly. I was saying the same thing today.
    Also when we complain about the rainy weather – hey, we don’t have tsunamis or earthquakes destroying our buildings and killing people.
