How automated are cities these days? Given a Contagion scenario, that pandemic we're all waiting for, and, say, most people carking it, all those major cities would grind to a halt? Do utilities like gas or power, or say water and the internet, need human supervision? Could survivors still go online and, say, debate their personality type in between, perhaps, swapping recipes for microwave popcorn or cheat codes for console games? Or is civilization basically over at that point?
