Writer's Block: Paging Al Gore

Would you give up the Internet for $10 million? (this is for the rest of your life.)

This is the sort of writers block question you end up answering when you have a strict rule on how often you have to post.

I probably wouldn't. I could give up the fun stuff (online games and puzzles, youtube) and the things that make communication easier (facebook and email). I could even give up livejournal.

But I think $10 million would actually increase my need for the internet. I cannot imagine managing that much money without online banking and stock brokerages.

Of course, it's easy to give the answer when there's nobody in front of me with a certified check and an enforceable contract. Reality might be a game changer.
