The Perils of Technology Dependence

CNN has a story that begins:

"ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (Reuters) -- An undersea cable carrying data between Pakistan and the outside world has developed a serious fault, virtually crippling data feeds, including the Internet, telecommunications officials said."

It is scary, how the entire world has come to depend on the Internet and other means of communication, and that a minor glitch could somehow cripple an entire nation.
