    WAYNE GLADSTONE is a longtime columnist for He is the creator and star of the Hate by Numbers online video series. His writing has appeared on McSweeney'sInternet Tendency, Comedy Central’s Indecision, and in the collectionsYou Might Be A Zombie and Other Bad News and The McSweeney's Joke Book of Book Jokes. He lives in New York.

    When the Internet suddenly stops working, society reels from the loss of flowing data and streaming entertainment. Addicts wander the streets talking to themselves in 140 characters or forcing cats to perform tricks for their amusement, while the truly desperate pin their requests for casual encounters on public bulletin boards. The economy tumbles and the government passes the draconian NET Recovery Act.

    For Gladstone, the Net’s disappearance comes particularly hard, following the loss of his wife, leaving his flask of Jamesons and grandfather’s fedora as the only comforts in his Brooklyn apartment. But there are rumors that someone in New York is still online. Someone set apart from this new world where Facebook flirters "poke" each other in real life and members of Anonymous trade memes at secret parties. Where a former librarian can sell information as a human search engine and the perverted fulfill their secret fetishes at the blossoming Rule 34 club. With the help of his friends---a blogger and a webcam girl, both now out of work---Gladstone sets off to find the Internet. But is he the right man to save humanity from this Apocalypse?

    For those of you wondering if you have WiFi right now, Wayne Gladstone’s Notes from the Internet Apocalypseexamines the question "What is life without the Web?"
