Who cares about all the crap entertainment that would be gone?
How would you share information? Who would you rely on for accurate information? Would the myriad of opinion that's available on the internet that helps you establish a position on any given subject no longer be available?
I could care less about the porn, the games, the meaningless sharing of personal information (SURVIVOR WAS SO WICKED AWESOME LAST NIGHT!), etc. The real loss would be the ability to quickly share information with people around the world.
Ask yourself how many protests, or major evens have taken place that you learned about ONLY because of the internet. How much less would you know if the internet ceased to exist?
