Pak$st#n still disconnected

First it was just funny, now it is plain ridiculous. I reported in this old post about Pak's internet failure. Latest news from that land suggests that they might stay disconnected all through July - coz surprise suprise... they are struggling to fix the broken cable..!!

Seriously though, this event presents a different perspective of things. Move forward a few years, and with e-governence, wide VoIP deployment, dual-stack cellular technology, etc, a complete country could be made solely reliant on the Internet. In such a scenario breaking a cable - accidentally or intentionally - could send a country into anarchy.

Can't predict the future, but sounds like a good movie script for now.
