Over the past two weeks multiple websites like Wikipedia and Reddit have temporarily shut down their sites to protect the anti-piracy bill SOPA and like Glenn, I too had wondered what would happen if Google shut down. The world most likely would not have erupted into chaos and rioting in the streets but I'm betting there would have been some pandemonium.
Think about how often you use Google on a daily basis. And not for general searches but also Google mail, documents, maps, analytics and image search.
For me, considering my job revolves around advertising on Google, would be insane pandemonium. Not to mention how much I rely on Google Maps to get me places and image search for images for my blog posts.
