Network Impermanence!

What is permanent in this Universe? Only Change we would say. We take so many things for granted and this is the latest thing that has been added to our list!
How many of us remember the numbers of our friends that is stored in our cellphones? How many of us have stored numbers in mails and take refuge of the mail every time we need to call someone? Ask yourself what else you take for granted.
In the end, it is only change that is permanent!

Here is an interesting article about how fragile the Internet is too.

It isn’t true, of course.
