North Korea Surfing the Intranet
In this June 11, 2013 photo, students attend their computer lesson at the Pyongyang International Football School which opened on May 31, 2013 on Rungna Island. 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.
