1What the World Would Look Like Without IT Professionals
2Is the Internet Down?
7Back to the Good Old Days
Like the TV series, “Life after People,” things would be fine for a while, but pieces of infrastructure and technology would slowly begin to break. Suddenly, more things would go awry. With nobody around to diagnose or fix any technology issues, department groups would perish, company divisions would diminish and business would come to a screeching halt. When it’s all said and done, people will … wait for it … actually grab the old pencils and paper out of dusty old file cabinets.
Pen and paper would be the only form of communication and data collecting. Large warehouses full of paper would serve as company databases, and people would have to use snail mail to communicate. Due to the large amount of wood needed to make the paper that would be required to keep up with the same level of data collecting we have today, forests would be completely leveled, leading to not enough carbon dioxide being turned into oxygen. Nations would be forced to move their masses into giant biodomes. When supplies eventually run short, battles over supplies would ensue. This would lead to a post-apocalyptic war where armies are sent into battle with swords and shields. In the end, mankind would cease to exist.
Bueller? Bueller? Without IT pros, there would be an endless echo for help, but without any reply. Whole businesses would come to a grinding halt without the backbone of IT expertise. Email slow? Your laptop won’t boot? Too bad. Without IT pros, there’ll be no answers nor solutions.
