Would You Go to an Internet Cafe?

I was recently asked if I thought Internet cafes are a thing of the past. I really hate when people go around declaring something is going to die or become obsolete. You may not see a need for a particular thing or place any longer, but does that mean it doesn’t serve a purpose for others?

Just when someone comes along and declares something as dead, it doesn’t really die. What are the chances we will never need to socialize with another human being? Granted, I don’t often go outside and interact with people that way. Thank God for social media outlets.

I don’t think Internet cafes, as such, are going to die out. People are always going to want to use an Internet connection. Perhaps their connection at home will go out (God forbid!!). Maybe they don’t have a connection of their own at all. What if their computer breaks? Why not go and get a cuppa Joe at an Internet cafe?

Seriously, folks. Stop trying to push your own thoughts off on the rest of us by trying to declare something as dead.

  1. I agree, they’re really popular in Korea, where they’re called PC bangs (meaning PC rooms) amongst gamers. People get together at a PC bang and game together.

  2. I don’t think internet cafes are going anywhere… at least I hope not! I love going out and being to work from somewhere that is not my home and not having to pay rent for an office space .. plus coffee is readily available! Always good people watching too!
