The Internet Is Down -- Now What?

"It’s likely that the Internet will soon experience a catastrophic failure, a multi­day outage that will cost the U.S. economy billions of dollars.

Or maybe it isn’t likely.

In any case, companies are not prepared for such a possibility.

But then again, some are.

These mixed messages come from credible sources. The confusion stems in part from the fact that the Internet has never seen anything much worse than local outages and brief slowdowns. But could it? And if it did, how ready would your company be?"

I have some valuable thoughts on this, which are unfortunately too large to fit in the margins of this blog.
