Fragility

At times, I thought about how dependent my job was on electricity. I mean, you need electricity if you want to play my game; I need electricity if I want to develop my game. Also, while I plan on selling my games in real life, the way I set up my payment methods places a heavy premium on online services, all which require electricity. In fact, my current field, software engineering, depends on devices which depend on electricity. There may be secondary skills that do not have this dependence (those who deal in art or mathematics, if I were to write two examples), though…

The recent blackout that removed electricity from all of Puerto Rico just had me feel this possibility…

Should I diversify? If so, then how?
