One of the signs of Armageddon

I predicted a couple years ago that within a few years a mass download of popular kitty pictures would cause the Internet to fail and communication, government, banking and industry would quickly collapse from a rapidly spreading cascade effect.

I found out yesterday Cory Doctorow had expanded that idea into a story "When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth" about terrorist and anarchist groups taking advantage of collapsing internet and communications.  They launch opportunistic attacks which brings down Western civilization.  The sysadmins struggling to keep world wide communications open briefly have the only organized power.

My mother might have thought this would be another sign: The Almost Gay Porn Stars Drinking And Darts Society.
