More about this years question

We all rely on the internet for many things – to help us, entertain us, connect us to others and the world. Maybe we can’t imagine life without it. Maybe there are days we just want to disconnect from it. Either way, it has a big impact on the way we live and the way we see the world. But each of us uses the internet in different ways and for different reasons. We’re really interested to know more about its impact in your life; we want to know your story.

So if the internet disappeared today, what would your life be like?
