North Korea Surfing the Intranet
FILE - In this May 15, 2013 file photo, young North Koreans take a closer look at the Samjiyon tablet computer produced for the North Korean market for sale at the 16th Pyongyang Spring International Trade Fair in Pyongyang. North Korea is literally off the charts regarding Internet freedoms. There essentially aren’t any. But the country is increasingly online. Though it deliberately and meticulously keeps its people isolated and in the dark about the outside world, it knows it must enter the information age to survive in the global economy.
