What do you mean my phone doesn't work?
Just imagine a lightening bolt hitting your cellphone.
"Never happen," you reply.
You're probably right, but think about this. Just imagine there's an earthquake and electricity delivery is interrupted for a week all over the San Francisco Bay Area. Would you Digital Natives be able to survive? I mean it's one thing to have no lights or a refrigerator full of mushy guck, but what about computers, cell phones, and iPads?
"That's easy," you say. "I'd just recharge my iPhone and notepad in my car charger."
That may work for a couple of days, but what do you do when you run out of gas? There's been a earthquake! You can't just pop down to the local station and get more.
I'm not sure what's scarier, that DN's can think of ways to stay connected during a natural disaster, or the fact that no one is worried about having enough food or water?
Just out of curiosity, do you have an Earthquake preparedness kit? If you do, what's in it?
