Great article by an Australian technology reporter Brad Howarth - http://www.smh.com.au/it-pro/security-it/what-if-they-pulled-the-plug-20130327-2gun9.html
The scarier part from me that most people dont realise is that we (city slickers) are no more than 3 days away from running out of food at any one time.
So take a simple solar flare event that knocks out not one telstra exchange but everyone on the eastern seaboard.....how would we fare then Eg do you think a supermarket could place orders with pen and paper to the distribution warehouse.
Yes yes i know most people will go sure sure....but with 8-10% possibilities of a solar event in the 2010-20 decade.....you have to wonder if we are worrying about the right things some days.
