In 1989 the world was forever changed with the birth of the internet. It’s hard to imagine what the world without the internet would even be like. Wikipedia has become the world’s library, Google is god and Facebook connects more than a billion people across the world.
The guys over at Founders Forum have made a video that reimagines a world without the internet and, not only is it funny, but it is also thought-provoking. To create this video depicting the world without the internet, Founders Forum teamed up with the World Wide Web Foundation, YouTube, Freud Communications and King Digital Entertainment, with Stephen Fry as the narrated. The video is called “The World Wide What?” and also features cameo appearances by world-wide web inventor Tim Berners-Lee, Arianna Huffington, Sean Parker, Stephen McConnel “Steve” Case, Michael Burch, Niklas Zennström, Michael Acton Smith, Riccardo Zacconi and Jimmy “Jimbo” Wales.
