Massive earthquake in Japan leaves only the Internet as a communication method

Friday, March 11th, 2011

Cellular phone networks and land lines were disrupted as a result of the devastating earthquake in Japan leaving the Internet as the only  means of communication for most residents. This event – as well as all of the recent turmoil in Africa and the middle east just gives more power to the idea that the Internet has become much more than a medium for entertainment and time wasting.

The Internet is oxygen for people going through crisis.
